Water Street Traffic Management Scheme

Temporary signs and plastic bollards were put in place to test the scheme to ultimately lead to a permanent Traffic Regulation Order. This has now been approved. The temporary items were never intended to be a fixed solution as they are incompatible with the conservation area.

A new design intended to be long-lasting has been drawn up by Suffolk Highways using permanent kerbing, oak posts and small low impact signage. This design must be proved by a trial to ensure its suitability. This trial is scheduled for 2 weeks in February 2023 and will involve removal of priority signage and road markings. Video Cameras will monitor the effect of the reduced signage on traffic flow to ensure it works as expected. There will temporary road closures whilst this trial is installed. Residents will be informed by the contractors in advance of the works.
