If you in any way agree, what suggestions could you give to make things better?

1 I don't see any way you can stop it.
2 Enforce weight restriction on Branch Road
3 The weight limit on Branch Road should be policed to stop the heavy vehicle traffic using Marsh Road
4 Relate to Q7
5 Pot holes filled on side of road
6 Heavy traffic is part of country life - farm vehicles, also tankers etc to service houses.
7 Check the right access off Acle Road which on the sign says 7.25 tonns, nit tractor + trailer over 15 tonns plus 40' lorries.
8 Flashing speed should help
9 Cricket does not cause any problems "Very Silly Question"
10 A ban on combine haversters and pea-viners along Branch Road. No where to pull in - REALLY FRIGHTENING!!!
11 Enforce Weight Limit on Branch Road
12 We have noticed heavy traffic is coming over the bridge at the Stracey now from the A47, which makes for more heavy lorries etc through the village. The weight limit on the bridge should be reinstated.
13 Width restriction for HGV on Branch Road
14 Speeding restrictions or join Tunstall to A47
15 Possibly re-enforce the weight limit signage at junction of Branch Road and A47
16 I'm not sure if there is a solution
17 Get PCSO's to fine speeders £100 + 3 points
18 It is a short cut to Reedham, Freethorpe and Cantley Factory, the one car passing places might reduce traffic and slow down traffic.
19 Is there a weight restriction on Branch Road?
20 Advise the people coming through the village to the cricket to drive considerably and carefully
21 Famers to control their tractor drivers
22 Heavy farm traffic is necessary in farming village but often they are speeding.
23 Enforce weight restriction on Branch Road more rigourously
24 More sugar beet lorries travelling at night
25 Go back to the horse and cart! That is what the roads were made for
26 Make farmers aware & get their tractor drivers to reduce speed & not use th everge as part of the road.
Farm machinery is too large for local roads
27 The build up of traffic comes during holiday times when Halvergate is a short-cut to get to Pettits and down to Reedham. Plus they don't all stick to the speed limit
28 Weight restriction on Railway Bridge should be enforced. A route throughr to Pettits, Cantley Factory, The Broads & other villages contribute to extra traffic. This is a public highway.
29 Flashing Speeding signgs
30 Less cricket, stricter speed enforcement, divert heavy vehicles
31 Enforce the weight restriction on Branch Road i.e. 7.5 tonnes on Railway Bridge
32 There are other events in the village that give traffic issues
33 Cannot see we can do anything about through traffic to Freethorpe etc
34 Advise the people coming through the village to the cricket to drive considerably and carefully
35 There is much damage and mud left on roads by farmers, make them clear it up.
36 You must expect traffic on a Public Highway
37 All roads have been allowed to narrow over time creating choke poinots, correct width maintenance is essential if only to comply with the law.
38 Only when cricket is on and only on Wickhampton Road
