  • Convert Dove Street to 2 way cycling

    Created by Shaun McDonald // 1 thread

    Dove Street is currently one way. It would be useful if it could be made 2 way for cycling for peopl coming from St Helen's Primary School to NCN 1.

    The left turn from St Helens Street into Dove Street is much easier than a right turn from St Helens Street into Regent Street, as you don't have to block a lane of traffic and hope for a gap in the traffic in the opposite direction, especially with kids. It's also a shorter route when heading towards the town centre.

  • Allow 2 way cycling along Stoke Quay and New Cut West

    Created by Shaun McDonald // 1 thread

    I've heard that there's a number of people who work in IP-City Centre who don't like cycling along the main road (Hawes Street, and Vernon Street) due to the traffic to get into town, or to the station, and would much prefer to take the quieter riverside route which has very little traffic. Dock Street already is two way for cycling, thus this would be a case of expanding the ability to cycle both directions.

  • Silent Street contraflow

    Created by Kevin Ablitt // 0 threads

    A new contraflow allows cycling in SW direction on Silent Street. Sadly the final result is a confusing mix and is a dangerous, disjointed facility. It is not easy to use and does not make it clear to motorists etc travelling NE direction to expect contraflow cyclists.

  • Dangerous cycle lanes in Ipswich Town Centre

    Created by Andrea // 3 threads

    In Museum Street and Upper Brook Street/Northgate Street it is very dangerous to cycle. Both roads are very narrow, have lots of buses pass through and there are contraflow cycle paths. On those you are very close to the buses (both directions) even if you wait on the pavements to let them through because you are worried about accidents. Can cyclepaths go through Elm Street, Tower Street or Tower Rampart instead?
