THE problem of congestion in Lowestoft town centre was the focus of a visit by the transport secretary to Lowestoft yesterday before he headed to Norwich.

Lord Adonis was in Lowestoft with labour candidate Bob Blizzard to find out about traffic problems in the town and the need for a third crossing.

Mr Blizzard said: 'The need for a third crossing dominates every day like here. Every time anyone goes from one side of town to the other, they wonder whether they can get there without a hold up.'

Lord Adonis said: 'Bob has been campaigning on very important local issues, including a third crossing to ease congestion. We've discussed his plans and he makes a strong case for a third crossing and I have told him that the government will fund a crossing if it is given priority by Suffolk County Council. The regeneration of Lowestoft is very important.'
