§ Mr. Money
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment (1) whether he will inquire into the possibility of constructing a road bridge across the River Orwell to carry traffic from Felixstowe Dock to London and the Midlands without having to pass through Ipswich;
(2) whether he will consider building a southern ring road to carry traffic from Ipswich Dock to London and the Midlands without having to pass through the central areas of Ipswich;126W
(3) how soon he expects to receive a report with regard to the flow of traffic through Ipswich; and whether he will make a statement;
(4) what proposals he has for relieving the present rate of traffic using the existing bypass through North Ipswich.
§ Mr. Michael Heseltine
I expect to receive the report of the Ipswich and Surrounding Areas Transportation Study in September. Until the report has been examined it is not possible to say how the traffic problems of Ipswich and district can best be met, nor to foresee whether a road bridge across the River Orwell and a southern ring road will be part of the pattern.
