Town's traffic system must be looked at

PUBLISHED: 12:34 09 October 2009 | UPDATED: 14:35 06 July 2010

FROM a young age we are taught to queue in a responsible manner and wait patiently until it is our turn for whatever.

If someone tries to jump the queue hackles rise and people become irate.

FROM a young age we are taught to queue in a responsible manner and wait patiently until it is our turn for whatever.

If someone tries to jump the queue hackles rise and people become irate. This is an in-built part of most people's make up.

Fast forward a few years and you are queuing in the nearside lane of Belvedere Road, in Lowestoft, and someone hurtles past you down the outer lane with the sole intention of pushing in.

Stand a few moments at Horn Hill roundabout and you will witness this time and time again, even when the nearside lane is not congested. Two into one will not go on a voluntary basis.

So what causes the problem in the first place?

If you travel from the Horn Hill roundabout to Station Square you will be impeded by two sets of road traffic lights and three sets of pedestrian controlled crossings … not forgetting our old friend the bascule bridge.

Perhaps our Highways Department, or whoever, should take another look at the situation.
