Still time to object to Harding's Way proposal, Lynn News letters

By Lynn News Reporter

This will now not happen. The Traffic Order has been publishedand we have the opportunity to object.This is the third time in 18 monthsfor this opportunity, and the fact that NCC is still at this stage is tribute to the massive opposition it has faced.

The order is to open up Harding’s Way South to all traffic, including HGVs. The stated reason is to build three accessroads off it for new buildings. Without improved flood defences it is doubtful if this is practicable.

The land is 6ft below the level of the road, was flooded in the Great Flood of ‘53, in the ‘70s, and in the storm surge of 2013. Apart from that there are currently no plans produced to build, and no finances, so it is, at least, premature to proceed and createthe danger, noise and disruption that such ‘works’ would cause. It is especially bizarre, at a time when services are being cut back severely, to spend money on roads which, quite literally, go nowhere.

We would have HGVs cutting across the paths of children going to Whitefriars Primary School, as well as cyclists, pedestrians and disabled people who use this safe route to town.

Objections in writing, should be sent by April 2 stating your reasons by sending an email to: trafficorders@norfolk.gov.uk or by post to: nplaw, Norfolk County Council, County Hall, Martineau Lane, Norwich, NR1 2DH, marked for the attention of Miss J. Batten.

We need hundreds of objections to get this madness stopped once and for all.
