Plans to install new traffic lights on the A12 in Ipswich have been announced ahead of a major development to reduce congestion.

Two thousand new homes are due to be built around Adastral Park at Martlesham Heath.

It's hoped a new traffic light junction between the BT and Foxhall roundabouts will help cope with thousands of more vehicles.
