New study to raise reliability of Felixstowe road link

[ January 31, 2020   //   ]

A Highways England-commissioned study of the Orwell Bridge in Ipswich – a vital link to and from the port of Felixstowe – has identified new measures that could help to keep the bridge open to traffic during high winds. Options include reducing the speed limit over the bridge during high winds, temporary lane closures or keeping the bridge open in one direction only. Highways England will now assess the feasibility of the with a view to introducing technology able to change the speed limit in high winds before the end of the year.
