Town's traffic system must be looked at
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.
- 1 Road to be closed and traffic diverted for a week
- 2 'A redevelopment opportunity' - Empty town centre shop and maisonette set for auction
- 3 Pub and restaurant group 'looking forward' to re-opening popular venues
- 4 'Innovative' new street light sparks interest on the coast
- 5 Closing coastal footbridge will have 'devastating' impact, pub owner says
- 6 'We can't wait' - Boutique owners prepare for April 12 re-opening
- 7 Lowestoft mother spared jail after admitting cruelty to one-year-old son
- 8 Investigations continuing after drugs seized during police raid
- 9 University joy for Lowestoft Sixth Form students
- 10 Suspected drink driver charged after police dog tracks down man hiding in a ditch
Perhaps our Highways Department, or whoever, should take another look at the situation.
