Improvements to Waterfront gateway

Published14th December 2018

The work, which is being delivered by Suffolk County Council in partnership with Ipswich Borough Council, will provide a better experience for pedestrians and cyclists travelling through the area and will further improve the Waterfront.

The aim of the scheme is to enhance the area by introducing footways and a clearly defined carriageway. A seating area will be created along with the installation of trees and bicycle parking. The addition of trees and seating area will provide an area for people to relax and take in the Waterfront surroundings.

The works which will begin on 7th January 2019, will take place along the wharf between Stoke Bridge, Bridge Street and Foundry Lane, opposite Dance East. The scheme has been designed to cater for the high number of pedestrians and cyclists that use the area as well as accommodating large vehicles accessing the Port.

Funding for the six-month scheme was secured via a bid to the Coastal Community Fund by the Ipswich Vision Group.
