Steps to make traffic scheme permanent

Moves to make Haverhill’s experimental pedestrianisation scheme permanent were to be made by St Edmundsbury Council.

Borough and town councillor Mike Richards said that he felt the council would go ahead and adopt the scheme on a permanent basis.

The scheme had been introduced in June 1989 and modifications had been added to appease some dissatisfaction, including making Mill Road one-way and opening up the town centre outside 10am and 4pm.


Husband and wife team John and Jean Twitchett from Kedinigton were preparing to embark on a 550 mile sponsored bike ride around southern England, starting in Ipswich and finishing in Kedington.

They wanted to do it to raise £10,000 for the British Dyslexia Association in tribute to the help their son Thomas, who had been diagnosed with Dyslexia two years earlier.

John and Jean had cycled from John O’Groats to Lands End the previous year for the Cambridge Cancer Help Centre.
