Since being elected in May 2017, I have supported the popular campaign to make Anglesea Road and the surrounding roads a 20MPH zone. I can confirm the scheme has finally been given the go ahead and you can read all about the details below.
20mph Zone latest
After the long awaited 20mph zone was given approval on 11 June, Cllr Lee Reynolds and I have been told that the final designs are currently being worked on before being implemented. We expect to see the scheme in operation early next year, after all the bureaucracy has been negotiated.
It’s a bit frustrating that the process has to be gone through, but at least we know it has been signed off and is going to happen – albeit after a few years of waiting!
Since the scheme was given the go ahead in June, Lee and I have received many calls from residents expressing approval at the news.
I am pleased to confirm to residents of Anglesea Road and the surrounding roads, the proposed 20 MPH Zone has been signed off by the Suffolk Highways department.
During my election campaign it became clear that this scheme had the passionate support of residents. I am pleased that it has now been given the green light and I am sure local residents will welcome the news.
I would like to thank Cllr Lockington and other councillors from all parties who have all worked hard on the issue since it was initially discussed.
Following concerns raised by residents in the Anglesea Road area, the proposed 20 mph speed limit would apply to the roads as seen in this plan.
