WOODBRIDGE residents can have their say on how to improve the A12.

Consultations are underway to find ways of improving the stretch of road between Ipswich and Lowestoft.

The road has seen several fatal accidents in recent years. Now Suffolk County Council has begun work on a plan to make it safer for road users and to improve the quality of life of residents.

Workshops and focus groups have already been set up and a postal survey has been sent to 30,000 households living around the A12.

Public exhibitions are also being held next week.

They are: March 21, Saxmundham Market Hall noon to 9pm; March 22, Woodbridge Shire Hall, noon to 9pm; March 23, Kessingland Community Centre, noon to 9pm.

Joan Girling, member of Suffolk County Council's executive committee said: "The A12 is an essential road for Suffolk's economy including tourism and farming. It is vital that road users and local people come forward with their views on how it can be made safer and accessible while also safeguarding the environment."
