Sudbury crossing delayed

THE construction of a pedestrian crossing in Sudbury town centre has been delayed.

Work on the crossing in King Street was due to start today, but many residents and traders have questioned the need for the £40,000 platform.

A spokesman for Suffolk County Council said the work would be delayed for a week while the authority explored options for “minimising the traffic and parking disruption” in the centre of town.
