Ipswich: Transport Plan Given Go-Ahead
Work on a new £22 million package of sustainable town centre transport measures in Ipswich has been given the final go ahead by Transport Minister Norman Baker today.
'Ipswich - Transport Fit for the 21st Century' is a scheme designed to deliver big changes to travel in the town.
The measures include:
- Changes to the town centre bus interchanges;
- Expansion and improvement of other bus facilities;
- An Urban Traffic Management and Control system;
- A Real Time Passenger Information system; and
- A detailed programme of improvements to walk/cycle routes and crossings in and around the town centre.
Norman Baker said:
"This innovative scheme will make a huge difference to the way people travel around Ipswich and will be a real boon to the local economy by making new business and housing sites more accessible by public transport.
"Strong transport infrastructure which helps to tackle congestion and reduce carbon will help the city achieve sustainable economic growth."
The scheme was one of 10 schemes in the Supported Pool of local authority major schemes announced in October 2010 following the Spending Review. Work can now start on the scheme and is forecast to complete in summer 2014.
