Cllr Lee Reynolds and I this week welcomed the introduction of the 20MPH zone on Angelsea Road after years of campaigning. The scheme was a pledge I made during my election campaign in 2017 and after many months of meetings and designs, we have seen it installed…finally!
After years of deadlock I am pleased it has been delivered. Both Cllr Lockington and myself have paid for this out of our Highways Improvement budget and it is good that we have been able to work together.
Parts of the area are hazardous and see regular accidents and I am confident that the 20MPH zone will reduce this and make it safer for pedestrians.
This is the largest of any 20MPH zone in the town and shows the ambition Suffolk County Council has to promote speed awareness when there is clear evidence of accidents in the area.
