Demolition work at the Old Cattle Market bus station in Ipswich is complete, and the next stage of work is set to get underway.

The latest element of the Travel Ipswich scheme is on schedule and should see new shelters in place by the end of June.

The bus station will then be resurfaced – and is due to reopen during August.

Meanwhile work on the largest single element of Travel Ipswich, the Civic Drive/Princes Street junction is on schedule to be completed by the end of this month.

The road will be resurfaced overnight for several nights from June 10 and the new traffic lights will come into use on Monday, June 17.

The final phase of work on the junction should be completed by the end of the month when the new pedestrian crossings should be brought into service.

Meanwhile work on Falcon Street is nearly complete – engineers working for contractors Skanska will then begin resurfacing the top of Silent Street ready for that to be reopened later in the summer.

Once all the current work is completed attention will switch to the Tower Ramparts bus station. That is due to be rebuilt during the autumn, and should be completed by the time the Christmas rush arrives at the end of the year.
