Saxmundham Neighbourhood Plan

Transport & mobility

While Saxmundham benefits from a popular railway station, it suffers from declining public transport services, some town centre traffic problems, and a lack of good or (in places) safe pedestrian and bicycle access routes.  New housing estates are not well linked to the town centre.  Is it now time to think about pedestrianizing part of the centre, or one-way traffic schemes?  In short, Saxmundham needs a coherent transport and mobility plan.
