Norwich Western Link consultation now open

Norfolk County Council has launched a public consultation which asks for people’s views on how it could best support people to walk, cycle and use public transport in the area to the west of Norwich.

The Local Access Consultation is part of the council’s Norwich Western Link project, which would see a new 3.8-mile dual carriageway road created between the western end of Broadland Northway and the A47. The new road will significantly change travel to the west of Norwich, and reduce traffic congestion and rat-running on existing roads and in communities. The council has therefore been looking at the opportunities this creates to help people get where they want to go on foot, by bike or by bus.

The consultation is also asking for feedback on proposals for the four local roads that are crossed by the planned route of the Norwich Western Link, as well as for Public Rights of Way in the vicinity of the new road.

Running for eight weeks until Sunday 20 September, you can view the proposals and respond to the consultation online.
