In his Six Point Plan for Ipswich, Ben Gummer and the Conservatives promised to secure the funds to build a Wet Dock Crossing across the Orwell. The Chancellor announced that the Wet Dock Crossing would be given the go-ahead.
As a Suffolk boy, it has been the greatest honour to represent a town I have known and cared about since I was a child. I am proud of what we have done in the last seven years to help Ipswich begin to become the town it deserves to be.
Two years ago, Ben promised two new routes - a Northern Route and the Upper Orwell Crossings - to end the congestion that too often blocks our town. He has managed to win the funding and engage an architect to start work on the Upper Orwell Crossings.
