Public's views sought on Beccles relief road plan

People in a Suffolk town are being asked for their opinions on plans for a new relief road.

The county council wants to build a new road on the southern edge of Beccles, to help reduce traffic congestion in the town.

It would directly link the A145 on London Road at Weston and the Beccles Business Park and Ellough Industrial Estates.

Residents and businesses have until 15 April to express their views.

They will be able to see the plans in more detail and give their opinions at Beccles Public Hall on 17 and 19 March.

Alternatively, the plans can be viewed online at the county council website and leaflets are available from the library and the Waveney District Council offices.

Councillor Guy McGregor, portfolio holder for roads, transport and planning on the Conservative-led county council, said: "This scheme is an important part of the work that we are doing to help reduce traffic congestion and improve the quality of life for the residents of the town."
