Speed limit on the A12

Local Conversations in Washbrook Street

Does anyone know how long the work between Ipswich and Colchester is going on for. Going towards Colchester I can see that they have resurfaced the road, but I never see the workmen at work. Just wondered.

ur all so rite but the matter is the owners its got to be sad wen they find out ,i would be mad if they hadnt told me , i think they should bring the licence back ,
Tina
Sorry if it's already been mentoned but I read that it was going to be law from next year to have all dogs micro-chipped due to the expense councils pay looking after strays. So, surely it follows that they will scan all dogs, dead or alive?
