Ipswich needs a northern relief road – here is how we can win the campaign
During the selection process to become the Conservative Prospective Parliamentary candidate for Ipswich I made clear my support for a northern relief road for Ipswich. I’m fully aware of how significant this issue is for Ipswich and the benefits that a new road could bring.
My First Month
“I’ve had a busy few weeks meeting people across the Town. Two weeks ago I published my website outlining my five top priorities for Ipswich: 1. Fighting for improvements to transport infrastructure 2. Increasing opportunities for young people 3. Tackling crime and anti-social behaviour 4. The town center 5. Health services and Ipswich Hospital.
The overwhelming transport infrastructure priority for Ipswich is a northern relief road. Over the past month it’s been made clear to me whoever I’ve spoken to just how important this is for the Town. The reality is that this infrastructure should have been delivered 20/30 years ago but it hasn’t and the people of Ipswich have paid the price for this through increasing levels of traffic.
The Government are doing some good work to promote apprenticeships. There have been some challenges with the way the apprenticeship levy works but I’m confident these can be ironed out.
My name is Tom Hunt and I am the Conservative prospective parliamentary candidate for Ipswich. I was deeply honoured to be selected by local members to be the candidate and my aim between now and the next general election is to win the confidence of the people in Ipswich to be their next Conservative Member of Parliament.
