B.   Cyclists will be able to cycle in both directions along the entire length of High Street with northbound cycle contraflow and southbound with traffic on carriageway. Cycle logo symbols on the road will be provided to alert other road users to expect the presence of cyclists.

C.   Pedestrian crossing points to be upgraded to improve visibility and access for pedestrians.

D.   Pavement widening to improve pedestrian access and movement.

E.   Four build out features with potential to incorporate trees, planting, benches, and street furniture create places to sit and linger. A segregated contraflow cycle lane is provided at footpath level.

G.   The High Street / Sizewell Road / Cross Street junction will be modified to restrict westbound access for vehicles into Cross Street except buses and emergency vehicles.
