Nacton Road, Landseer Road and Rands Way, Ipswich consultation, 20th November 2017, 18:00 to 20:00 at Gainsborough Room, Murrayside Learning Centre, Nacton Road, Ipswich (11.2 miles)
Ipswichâ??s population is set to grow by 42,000 over the next 19 years. This growth is predicted to have an impact on traffic levels in and around the town.
Suffolk County Council (SCC) has been investigating what this means for the existing road network and has successfully bid to the New Anglia Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) for funding for road and junction improvements.
The total fund is £5 million with £3.5 million coming from the LEP and SCC contributing £1.5 million.
The proposal for this location is part of a wider package of measures across the town that will help ease congestion and enhance the sustainable transport provision.
As part of this consultation, we will be hosting this consultation event in Ipswich, where the public can learn more and speak to members of Suffolk County Councilâ??s programmeâ??s team.

'Sunday in the Park with George' is inspired by the painting "A Sunday Afternoon on the island of La Grande Jatte" by Georges Seurat. A complex work, with a lovely, wildly inventive score, the show revolves around a fictionalised Seurat, immersed in a single-minded concentration while painting his masterpiece and the people in that picture. Don't miss this rare opportunity to see on the most acclaimed of Sondheim's musicals.
