Last chance for The Thoroughfare traffic consultation

News ArticleLast chance for The Thoroughfare traffic consultation

The Thoroughfare Working Group held a public consultation recently on the proposed changes to the Traffic Regulation Order in The Thoroughfare.

The results of this initial consultation have been collated and show that option 2B was the most popular.i.e

No access at any time except permit holders and loading/unloading.

This will include disabled drivers. This result has the backing of the Disability Action Suffolk Forum.

The lorry weight restriction will be removed.

The new restrictions will be in force 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Parking will only be allowed in signed bays, which will be better marked.

The signage both on the approach to the Thoroughfare, and in the road, will be much simpler and will show it as a pedestrian zone.

The next stage of the consultation will ensure that all those that may be affected by the proposed changes can have their say before we move to the final stage consultation next year by Suffolk County Council.

Full results of the consultation can be viewed in Woodbridge Library until 15th December.
