Suffolk authority has already spent £8m but now says it cannot afford proposed crossings
Suffolk council is set to scrap plans for the construction of a trio of bridges designed by Foster & Partners after failing to secure enough funding.
The original cost for three bridges crossing the River Orwell at Ipswich had been put at £97m, but a report by engineer Jacobs said the real price could reach £140m.
The council appealed to bodies including the transport department, the Treasury and local businesses to raise the extra cash.
