The public consultation about the A12 improvements (A14 Seven Hills to A1152 Woods Lane) is running until the 19th March 2021. The works proposed by the A12 Scheme will help to support economic and housing growth and create a better environment for walking/cycling and support an increase in the use of public transport.
The Scheme will enhance highway capacity at eight junctions on the A12, between the A14 Seven Hills and the A1152 Woods Lane. It will also provide a new section of dual carriageway (between the B1438 and B1079 junctions at Woodbridge) and improve walking/cycling and public transport facilities.
Proposed pedestrian and cycle improvements in the Woodbridge area section include:
- Over 1km of new segregated pedestrian / cycle path on the east side of the A12 between Seckford Hall Road and B1079 Grundisburgh Road.
- One of the following two options to link the new segregated pedestrian /cycle path on the east side of the A12 to Top Street:
- A new pedestrian / cycle footbridge over the B1438 Ipswich Road, just east of Junction F, the A12 / B1438 junction. This option would include a pedestrian /cycle facility via Woodbridge Town Football Club to link to Seckford Hall Road, and a pedestrian / cycle facility from the B1438 Ipswich Road to link to Top Street.
- An improved pedestrian / cycle route from Old Barrack Road (Woodbridge) to Top Street (Martlesham) via Sandy Lane, this would be achieved by closing a section of Sandy Lane to vehicles, this option would include a controlled crossing on B1438 Ipswich Road. Access to properties off Sandy Lane would be maintained.
- A new controlled pedestrian / cycle crossing across the A12 at Seckford Hall Road, north of Junction F, the A12 / B1438 junction
- A new controlled pedestrian / cycle crossing across the B1079 Grundisburgh Road, just east of Junction G, the A12 / B1079 Grundisburgh Road junction
- A new controlled pedestrian / cycle crossing across the A12, just south of Junction G, the A12 / B1079 Grundisburgh Road junction
- A new controlled pedestrian / cycle crossing across the A12, just north of Junction H, the A12 / A1152 Woods Lane junction
- A new segregated pedestrian / cycle path from Woods Lane to the new crossing above.
