The town needs a bypass to the north WITHOUT building any new homes. Felixstowe is home to the biggest container port in Europe and the A14 transports lorries from there to the midlands and beyond. When the Orwell bridge closes down, Ipswich becomes absolutely chock-a-block with traffic. This is bad for the environment as it can take an hour to get through town (think of the extra emissions that all those thousands of cars create) and is bad for business as businesses in the rest of the country have to wait a little longer for their deliveries. Given that we intend to be trading with the rest of the world in this post-Brexit future, doesn’t it make sense to invest in the infrastructure near our busiest container port?
