MAJOR steps are to be taken to reduce the danger at the killer gaps on the A12 at Brightwell.
Kennels Road, which joins the A12 at the controversial gaps, is to be closed to all but essential traffic.
The move represents a substantial victory in The Evening Star's campaign to close the gaps, launched in the wake of the accident that claimed the lives of elderly Melton couple Edward and Pamela Bishopp in December 2000.
Locked gates are to be installed to prevent other traffic using the road as a rat-run and council officials are confident the move will remove almost all traffic that uses the gaps.
Only the residents of three houses and two farmers will have keys to open the gates.
