Persistant parkers also a problem

ADRIAN Bray's comment (August 22) about inconsiderate drivers should also include those who block the exit of Asda so that the drivers not heading into town get held up.

There is a box saying keep clear; this means, as far as I was concerned, the whole width, so you can enter and go round the roundabout and then out of the hold up.

Part of the problem is people not using both lanes heading for town and so backing up onto the roundabout.

This is because some people are still following the instructions (merge in turn) that were issued at the time the new road was opened when the junction was not finished and some insisting we must queue at all cost and not let anyone in.

But I do agree with the letter from John Wylson about the turning right on the bridge at Notleys, send all traffic along Mill Road except for those accessing Belvedere Road or the sea front.

But stiffer penalties to the persistent parkers that block the road from both directions on the bridge and perhaps to appease residents cheaper parking fees in the nearest car parks to entice them from parking on the roads.

But a big help to all traffic heading for south Lowestoft from the Asda roundabout would be to open the road that has still not been opened after all this time.
