Access onto the bridge needs to be free flowing otherwise traffic will BACK UP along Wherstead Road, and pollution will go up! It concerns me how the bridge will lift to allow ships through very disruptive to traffic flow.

Increased traffic on Cliff Lane and Station Street, will have a negative impact on bus routes 6 & 15, making buses less attractive to use and more expensive to operate. The Junction between Luther Road Belstead Road is not suitable for increased traffic volume. Additional pedestrian crossings needed on Wherstead Road. Attenuation measures needed to prevent congestion in sensitive areas F.L. Vernon St and in roads used by public transport, support objectives 1,2,3 & 5 but not objective 4.

YES! As a yacht owner in Ipswich Haven Marina with a 20 Metre high Mast, I fear we will have to more out and birth somewhere else as we will be severely restricted with access. Is the bridge going to open at high water? Have you spent time in the lock to observe how long it takes to keep boat movements going?

In Brief:There is often congestion or delays. - Public transport user.
Biggest concern: Air quality.
Favourite Traffic Management solution: Traffic calming.

Person made these comments:

My concerns are restricted to the wider effects of the crossings. Measures to ensure air quality doesn't deteriorate. Measures to reduce traffic noise, more traffic means more cyclists using the pavement/ cycle lanes gives license to cyclists to use all pavements, increasing their sense of security at the expense of pedestrians, but I am at a loss to suggest an alternative and resigned to having to think of the pavements as open to light traffic and avoiding accordingly.

In Brief:There is often congestion or delays. - Pedestrian.
Biggest concern: Air quality.
Favourite Traffic Management solution: Traffic calming.

Person made these comments:

Speed bumps down Nacton Rd's slip road. Junction changes - Maryon Rd/;Nacton Rd. Lights and congestion cause frequent problems and use of slip road as high speed alternative. Parking on the wide paths is a problem for peds and cyclists. My concerns are restricted to the wider effects of the crossings. - can measures be taken to ensure that air quality doesn't deteriorate? Is it monitored even? - More traffic more noise - measures to reduce? - More traffic means more cyclists using the pavement. Cycling lanes give licence to cyclists to use all pavements, increasing their sense of s***? at the expense of pedestrians. But I'm at a loss to suggest an alternative and resigned to having to think of the pavement as open to light traffic and acting accordingly.

Regeneration will create more congestion and traffic concentration Traffic will be redirected rather than solve congestion None of the options for traffic management will address traffic volume, pollution or noise.
