The Barnby Bends Improvement Scheme


Improving the Barnby Bends has been talked about for many years and thus it is good news that the Government have agreed to fund a study to establish a preferred solution and to prepare a business case with a request for funding.

A scheme is needed so as to remove an accident black spot, to upgrade the A146 between Beccles and Lowestoft in order to compliment other recent improvements such as the Beccles Southern Relief Road and the forthcoming Third Crossing and to attract jobs to the area.

There are many different views as to the form that the scheme should take and it’s important that everyone has the opportunity to put forward right their views to Suffolk County Council who will be undertaking the study.
