Improvement to Hempton Roundabout - Hempton Green Road (B1146) / Dereham Road (C550)

Closed 6 Jun 2021

Opened 17 May 2021


We are proposing to improve the existing Hempton Green Road (B1146) / Dereham Road (C550) junction at Hempton, near Fakenham, by replacing the current crossroads with a new roundabout, and new and improved paths and crossings for pedestrians.

The aim of the scheme is to help improve safety and reduce congestion at this location which has seen a number of road collisions in recent years. In the recent 5 year period (2016 – 2020), there have been three collisions documented as ‘serious’ and three collisions documented as ‘slight’ at the existing crossroads junction. It has been identified that replacing the existing crossroads with the proposed roundabout will reduce the level of risk at the junction.

If approved, construction will commence in 2022.
