A scheme that could see footpaths widened and new crossings provided in south Lowestoft as part of plans to improve walking and cycling links is progressing.
There's still time to have your say in a public consultation over improving walking and cycling facilities between Dell Road and Kirkley Rise in Lowestoft.
After Suffolk County Council (SCC) unveiled plans as part of phase 2 of the Active Travel Fund last month, people in the town are being urged to have their say on plans to upgrade the existing routes.
And with a consultation continuing for a few more days, your views are being sought on the proposals to enhance walking and cycling provision in areas of Lowestoft.
With the county council keen to hear people’s thoughts about the proposed improvements, which "will provide sustainable and safer links between residential developments, schools, and employment areas", the changes would enhance existing walking and cycling routes.
For the Dell Road and Kirkley Rise scheme, a county council spokesman said: "Suffolk County Council is proposing to upgrade existing routes between Dell Road to the Kirkley Rise area, Lowestoft.
"The proposals include widening existing footpaths to a standard suitable for cycling, providing new pedestrian and cycle crossings and improving signage to help make walking and cycling easier and more convenient for people.
"The route will connect residential areas with existing walking and cycling routes to fill in a ‘missing link’ in the network."
