WHEN will the 'experts' realise the main cause of traffic problems in Lowestoft is the three lanes on the bascule bridge. Consequently, the two lane approach becomes Lowestoft's M25.
WHEN will the 'experts' realise the main cause of traffic problems in Lowestoft is the three lanes on the bascule bridge. Consequently, the two lane approach becomes Lowestoft's M25. The 'merge-in-turn' system will never work despite all the threats of fines and points, until the bridge becomes four lanes.
This could be achieved by making both the present pedestrian pathways into a fourth lane. An idea would be to bolt pedestrian pathways onto the bridge.
If I am approaching the bridge to go to the station it doesn't make sense to travel in the outside lane only to squeeze into the inside lane just before the bridge.
It is obvious that the 'experts'' concern is that the tailback does not cause problems or embarrassment for the costly relief road which already has its own relief road via Oulton Broad, even though it ultimately leads to the bridge.
The 'merge' and 'give way to traffic from the right' creates an impossible situation throughout the entire town.
'Give way to the right' surely never intended to mean 'give way to a constant, unbroken, stream of traffic reaching back to the horizon.'
