Closed 9 Aug 2021

Opened 12 Jul 2021


Connecting the Norwich Lanes – have your say

We want your views on changes to how the Norwich Lanes area functions and feels.

The Transport for Norwich partnership is proposing to do this through a series of projects, which aim to:

  • Make it safer and easier to get around on foot or by bike
  • Support outdoor hospitality and boost the local economy
  • Improve air quality

A range of inter-connected schemes makes up the overall vision for the area and proposals include:

  • A new riverside footbridge between Duke Street and St Georges Street
  • Making the temporary measures to remove general traffic on St Benedicts Street and Exchange Street permanent
  • A new cycle track and crossing facilities on St Andrews Street
  • Creating a better environment for enjoying the St Giles Street area on foot

These are just some of the plans we’re putting forward to make the most of this fantastic city destination so read on to find out more and how to share your views on its future.

What happens next

The deadline for consultation responses is Monday 9 August 2021. The feedback received on each of the project areas will then be analysed and, where appropriate, the plans revised in response. The points raised through the consultation will then be reported back to local councillors along with the final proposals for scheme delivery.

The project web page will be kept up to date with the latest information, progress and relevant committee dates.
