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.

Please answer all  questions.

Proposal 6

Lorry Watch:

Lorries should only travel through Stradbroke to deliver - it is not an access route.  If information on lorries using Stradbroke for through travel can be gathered Suffolk County Council can act.

A Lorry Watch scheme could help this... if you are interesting in helping gather the information, please leave contact details below.

Estimated cost: nil - volunteer time required.
