Save the Upper Orwell Crossing

The Upper Orwell Crossings will do two things: Firstly, it will relieve traffic around the Star Lane gyratory by creating an alternative route across the Orwell. Secondly, it will unlock the Island site for development creating new high value jobs for Ipswich.

The upper orwell crossings project is ready to go with money already allocated by the government, plans drawn up and millions already spent on it. Revising/potentially derailing it is a waste of money.

If you don’t want to see millions of tax payers money wasted, keep Ipswich moving and create high value jobs and investment, sign the petition here.

FORWARD

This is why it is so important to elect Conservative County Councillors on May 4th in Suffolk. This is what progress looks like, Conservative Suffolk County Councillors working with Conservative Ipswich MP Ben Gummer to move Ipswich FORWARD by investing in infrastructure.

This progress would not have happened if you put Labour or Liberal Democrats in the above sentence. Conservative County Councillors and Ben Gummer understand our town is suffering with traffic problems. They have identified a way to drastically reduce traffic congestion by building the upper Orwell Crossing.

However, Labour led Borough council wish to pile more misery onto drivers in Ipswich by building over 700 homes (to begin with) with all traffic on and off that site going onto Valley Road via Westerfield and Henley Road.

The choice is vast!
