Update on Norwich Western Link
Work continues on our project to create the Norwich Western Link, a new dual carriageway road between the A47 and the western end of Broadland Northway (formerly the Norwich Northern Distributor Road).
With aims including improving the quality of life for local communities and reducing congestion, as well as improving access to some key sites like Norwich Airport, Norwich Research Park and the hospital, the Norwich Western Link is one of our top infrastructure priorities.
Earlier this year, we agreed a preferred route for the road and the project was made a regional priority, which means we’re hopeful of gaining national funding for most of the costs. Further surveys and design work are being carried out and we’re working towards starting construction in late 2022 and opening the road to traffic in early 2025.
