  • Dutch style roundabout for A14/B1113 south of Claydon

    Created by Shaun McDonald // 1 thread

    The roundabout at the south end of Claydon under the A14 is pretty horrible for pedestrians and cyclists. It would be extremely useful if this could be upgraded to a Dutch style roundabout with:

    * tighter entrances and exits will slow down vehicles to a safer speed while cyclists and pedestrians are around. The current dimensions are only ok when there are no cyclists or pedestrians around and it's safe for motors to go fast.
    * single lane entrances and exit will make is easier to cross each arm. There would be no zig zag in the island.
    * cycle track with separate pavement for pedestrians outside the roundabout, thus preventing conflict between the 3 modes of transport.
    * cycle track crossing at 90 degrees to the road to aid visibility between different modes of transport.

  • Tesco development Grafton Way/Star Lane/Greyfriars/Stoke bridge/Nicholas Street

    Total re-design of this important junction.
    Very complicated junction with 4 routes entering/leaving .
    Covers very large area.
    Proposal is for one large oval to replace existing double roundabout.
    The junction has an existing reported and unreported high level of vehicle/cyclist crash.
    An ideal opportunity for Ipswich to have a radical design which protects the more vulnerable road users ?
