Having recently opened an office in Lynn, I am forced to come in and out of “Lynn” via the South Gate. I’m sure many of your readers have experienced this at rush hour. I believe knocking it down would be a great idea, although I do realise some people might be against this.
So a less radical idea would be to sort the lanes out. Coming in, cars are forced into one lane due to the gate. But then for some reason allowed back into two lanes for no reason, forcing the outgoing traffic into one lane. If the outgoing traffic were allowed two lanes at this point escaping this historical town would be much easier.
Hopefully no one will be waiting in the tower from the council to pour hot oil on me for my suggestion!
