A proposal to close Sandwich’s historic toll bridge to vehicles has outraged residents who claim it would spell disaster.
Architects Rummey Design, commissioned by Sandwich Town Council, has surveyed the town and is holding a consultation on the proposals called Which Way for Sandwich?
The aim is to streamline the street network, help people feel safer and allow trade and tourism to flourish.
But residents feel one suggestion – closing the town’s toll bridge – would do the opposite.
Paul Cantle, of Highway Marine Service Centre, said the closure would have an adverse effect on his business as it did recently.
He said: "When the Barbican was being repaired, we worked out we lost a week's worth of labour sat in traffic jams between Discovery Park and the White Mill roundabout. We can't afford to do this. We like to think we bring people into the area."
