LEAVE THE DOUBLE ROUNDABOUTS ALONE, DONT ADD TRAFFIC LIGHTS TO NORWICH ROAD

This petition made change with 510 supporters!


IPSWICH HAS SUFFERED AN IMENSE AMOUNT OF TRAFFIC DISRUPTION OVER THE LAST YEAR. SOME NEEDED, MOST NOT NEEDED. THE CURRENT PLAN TO COME TO LIGHT IS TO REMOVE THE DOUBLE ROUNDABOUTS ON NORWICH ROAD, AND TO ADD TRAFFIC LIGHTS. THIS IDEA HAS BEEN CREATED BY A CYCLIST, WHO DOES NOT LIVE IN IPSWICH, DOES NOT USE THIS ARTERY OF A ROAD, AND WHO HAS OPENLY STATED HE WANTS TO DRAMATICALLY REDUCE CARS IN IPSWICH. HE HAS BEEN QUOTED AS SAYING IF YOU LIVE IN IPSWICH, YOU CAN BUS OF CYCLE EVERYWHERE. THIS IS JUST SIMPLY NOT TRUE, OR NOT POSSIBLE FOR MANY PEOPLE TO DO. THE LIGHTS WILL NOT BE CONNECTED TO OTHER ARTERY ROAD LIGHTS. I CANNOT BEGIN TO IMAGINE THE GRIDLOCK THE TOWN WILL BE IN. IN ADDITTION, THE COMMUTERS WILL REDIRECT THEMSELVES THROUGH OUR ALREADY BUSY HOUSING ESTATES TO AVOID THE CHAOS AND DELAY, WHICH WILL CAUSE TRAFFIC BUILD UP ALL AROUND THE SCHOOLS, AND OTHER MAIN ROADS THROUGH THE TOWN. I CANT BEGIN TO IMAGINE THE DELAYS DURING THE WEEKS AND WEEKS OF ROADWORKS THAT WILL OCCUR. THEN I COME TO COST. IS THIS A COST WE REALLY NEED TO SPEND? HOW MANY THOUSANDS, OR MILLIONS WILL IT COST?? WOULD THIS MONEY NOT BE BETTER RE-DIRECTED TO MORE HOUSING FOR EXAMPLE? OR HAVING JUST CUT THE HOUSING BENEFIT TO THE HOMELESS REFEUGES CHARITIES IN IPSWICH, LEAVING UP TO 700+ BEDLESS? SCHOOLS, COLLEGES, OTHER CHARITIES? ALL STRUGGLING.. PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION. IT MAY NOT BE THAT IMPORTANT TO YOU, BUT PLEASE SEE THE BIG PICTURE..
