Business update on the Upper Orwell Crossings
Join us at this business brunch for an update on the proposal for three new River Orwell crossings close to Ipswich town centre and waterfront.

Hailed as a catalyst for regeneration work in Ipswich, including the redevelopment of the Wet Dock Island and continued success of the Waterfront area, the crossings are expected to relieve traffic congestion and improve connectivity within our town.

With provisional funding in place and ground investigations work now taking place, this is your opportunity to ask questions to project manager Suzanne Buck and find out what the impact and potential benefits of the crossings could be to your business.
