Highways Survey for Stradbroke
The Parish Council is commencing a public consultation on possible improvements that could be made to the roads in Stradbroke.
The Parish council has received many complaints regarding highways issues including speeding, junction blocking and an increase in HGV traffic
There is no magic wand that will solve the issues raised by residents, but there are a number of recommendations that could be implemented in an attempt to improve matters. Suffolk County council have provided a very rough guide to the possible costs of these improvements.
To enable the Parish Council to investigate the proposals further, public support must be demonstrated.
This survey is the first step in the process to highlight to residents what can be done and to seek the views of the residents to gauge whether the proposals have the support (or not) of the residents of Stradbroke.
