Gorleston's traffic woes to be discussed

PUBLISHED: 10:36 04 March 2009 | UPDATED: 13:10 03 July 2010

THE awkward question of how best to prioritise traffic in Gorleston's busy high street is among topics being aired at a public meeting.

And to help the long-running debate find an answer Gorleston Start is repeating its 2004 survey to provide up-to-date responses to decision makers at County Hall.

THE awkward question of how best to prioritise traffic in Gorleston's busy high street is among topics being aired at a public meeting.

And to help the long-running debate find an answer Gorleston Start is repeating its 2004 survey to provide up-to-date responses to decision makers at County Hall.

Margaret Ward said officials had sat up and taken notice of the previous survey agreeing to phase the traffic lights at the library differently to give pedestrians more time to get across.

Other subjects for discussion include the seafront, riverside and third river crossing. Mrs Ward said the aim of the meeting was to make sure Gorleston's voice was heard loud and clear before anything was done to affect the vibrant town centre or seafront.

At the meeting at Gorleston library on Tuesday March 17, 7pm, people will be divided into three groups and hopefully have a chance to discuss all the issues.
