20MPH Zone Delivered ✅

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.

Anglesea Road 20MPH Zone

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.
