In response to the popularity of walking and cycling during the pandemic, and to encourage reduced usage of cars and public transport, the Government has announced a £250m investment in emergency interventions to make these methods of transport safer.
These interventions will allow those who need and want to make essential journeys or take daily exercise by foot or cycle to do so safely, while also maintaining social distancing. Providing better routes for those who want to walk or cycle means less crowding on public transport and fewer cars on the roads.
Suffolk County Council has, therefore, put a number of temporary traffic schemes in place. The details of each scheme can be found within the Transport Recovery Plan
. Each scheme is temporary, but the Council is keen to gather feedback on how they are working.
