One-Way System through Leiston
A one-way system has been proposed to discourage traffic travelling through the town and subsequently avoid gridlock in the town centre, especially if SZC were to go ahead. The new plans would also enhance the pedestrian facilities with wider pavements and go hand-in-hand with the Community Land Trust project to encompass the existing history and character of the town. Traffic to Eastlands Industrial Estate and the exisiting power stations would be directed along Lover’s Lane thus avoiding the town centre.
