I’ve recently been carrying out a survey in Ravenswood covering a number of local issues. Aside from the Orwell Bridge closures, the biggest transport issue affecting the community is the single point of access to the road network and the congestion this bottleneck creates. This is something I’ve experienced first-hand getting in and out of Ravenswood.
The response I got to the survey was impressive. 94% of respondents reported experiencing delays at the choke point with 75% describing the delays as frequent and 19% saying they often meet with delays. Just 6% said they experience no delays at all.
I’ve now written to the Leader of Suffolk County Council asking for a meeting to start getting this issue addressed. And the possibility of a second access point for Ravenswood needs to be on the table in these discussions.
