Your views on Dereham Road/Longwater Lane junction improvement

Closed 7 Jan 2018

Opened 27 Nov 2017


The second phase of a scheme to reduce congestion and improve traffic flow on the busy A1074 Dereham Road is planned to get underway next year. The first phase has already seen two eastbound (Norwich bound) exit lanes built at the junction near the Roundwell medical centre.

The second phase of the work will see the section of Dereham Road between the Longwater Lane junction and Britannia Way widened to four lanes. At the Longwater Lane junction, both of the existing two lanes of traffic will be permitted to turn right onto Dereham Road.

The aim of the work is to reduce the current congestion issues and provide additional capacity on the road network to deal with the planned housing growth in the area.

The project is estimated to cost about £4.6million, which includes a high pressure gas main diversion. Funding is from developer contributions and a £2.0 million allocation from the New Anglia Local Enterprise Partnership, Local Growth Fund.

Why We Are Consulting

We want to find out if there is anything we may need to take into account before the scheme goes ahead.

We will review all the comments in early January and hope to agree the final layout by the end of January.

Please read the letter we sent out to residents and look at the plans and then email us your views.
