Pedestrian Crossing Wilford Bridge, Suffolk
Suffolk Coastal District Council, where is the promised pedestrian crossing for Wilford Bridge, Melton, Suffolk? We understand that our local MP has campaigned for a safer barrier crossing for the nearby level crossing, which has seen many dangerous incidents including a packed school bus, narrowly missing a train 9 years ago. Pedestrians must have a safe crossing, with the increasing traffic flow and the new development opposite Melton Station. http://theresecoffey.co.uk/news/suffolk-coastal/level-crossing-to-be-installed-at-melton/397 http://www.eadt.co.uk/news/school_bus_in_level_crossing_near_miss_1_83670 The location of a level crossing on a bend of the level crossing, combined with increased traffic and increased footfall from pedestrians with the new development opposite the station, leaves the public in a dangerous position. Can you tell us exactly where the crossing will be positioned and how you intend also intend to further enhance the safety of the nearby level crossing by having some joined up thinking around this issue.
Suffolk Coastal and Suffolk County Council do something about Budgens and attached land
Budgens the main supermarket in one of the most prominent Suffolk Towns, has been left in limbo, new operators or buyers, left hanging, the site shabby due to the attached boarded up area. Please investigate why one buyer after another drops out and why such a prominent site is dragging the town into uncertainty. What is this dispute about, is it the attached land? Does the owner need more help and scrutiny? Whatever it is please sort it out. Sainsburys appeared to be a runner? What has gone on there? Please do something, it is not fair on the local population who do not wish to drive miles to other towns or supermarkets let alone the extra car use. The artwork on the attached boarded land, is fun but surely temporary? The public have waited long enough for answers and so have the staff who try and keep cheerful working clearly under difficult circumstances with depleted stocks in a depressing store.
