Last Friday I was interviewed by the Ipswich Star regarding my views on the northern bypass. Please have a read. As you’ll see, I haven’t exactly held back when it comes airing my views. By instinct I’ve never been a fence sitter. It’s my strong view that this project is desperately needed to reduce traffic congestion in the Town and to support wider economic development across the region. Despite promises made during the last General election campaign, I do not believe that the Labour MP for Ipswich has been active enough in backing the project and I must say I’m not even sure whether he’s still supportive.
