  • Ipswich Borough council have done there best to make pedestrians more vulnerable to cars that mount the pavement. Railings have been removed at Saint Matthews St, Civic Drive, Crown St and Saint Margaret St. Although they have left the railings that were struck by a vehicle on Girton Way in place.
