Quiet Lanes Project

Stanton Parish Council is exploring opportunities to designate certain rural lanes in the villages of Stanton and Bardwell as “Quiet Lanes” as part of a county wide project.

The support of residents in both villages is required to enable the project to progress.
Road Safety is a top priority for both villages.

Quiet Lanes are a nationally recognised designation for narrow, rural single-track lanes (i.e no line markings), typically with less than 1,000 vehicle movements per day. Quiet Lanes are shared by walkers, horse riders, cyclists and other road users. They encourage drivers to ‘Expect and Respect’ more vulnerable road users and so allow non-motorised users to enjoy rural lanes in greater safety. These types of lanes do not impose traffic restrictions and are not enforced. Advisory signs are placed at either end of Quiet Lanes to show motorised users clearly that the road is a shared space.

We have identified, in conjunction with Suffolk County Council (Highways), the following proposed sites (which meet the necessary criteria of less than 1,000 vehicle movements per day) as being suitable for designation.
• Duke Street (North), Stanton
• Wyken Road (from T Junction with Wyken Road) Stanton to A143
• Wyken Road (from A143 to Daveys Lane X roads ) Bardwell
• Knox Lane Bardwell
• Daveys Lane Bardwell
• Glassfield Road Stanton (to Daveys Lane X roads)
• Bury Lane Stanton from j/w Sturgeons Way towards Wyken Road
