Bawdsey Quay and Ferry Rd – in a joint effort by the County, District and Parish Council to address the ongoing problems of parking, safety and river bank damage, three important steps have now been approved:
- A Temporary Traffic Regulation Order, financed by East Suffolk, to place temporary barriers along the stretch of road leading to the Quay to limit parking there, to be in place after April 5th for the duration of the summer
- Marking of parking spaces on Bawdsey Quay, with a central area of parking spaces clearly marked; no firm date for this as yet, but we hope to see this done within the coming weeks
- Permanent traffic regulation scheme – very much a long term solution, including such features as yellow lines, restricted waiting, additional small laybys for cars, etc. This is still at the design stage, and will of course be subject to public consultation – but a scheme could be ready for the autumn, and East Suffolk will finance this.
These steps represent a serious effort to tackle serious problems, and the Parish Council has struggled to arrive at a safe solution, a fair one for all users, and one that County and District are willing to finance. We are all hoping it will make a worthwhile difference. We will add further detail to the Parish Council website as it becomes available.
