Consultation on proposals for Gayton Road, King’s Lynn

Norfolk County Council is asking for feedback on proposed changes to Gayton Road, King’s Lynn, including the exit for buses from the Queen Elizabeth Hospital junction. 

This project is part of a series of improvements we’re making in King’s Lynn, Norwich and Great Yarmouth, aimed at improving bus journey times and reliability of services across our public transport network. We’re using funding awarded to us by the Department for Transport for our Bus Service Improvement Plan (BSIP) to invest in infrastructure at strategic locations, relieving specific areas of congestion that affect buses so we can deliver better, more punctual services. Through these changes, along with funding for additional and extended services, the current £2 fare cap and zero-emission buses, we hope that more people will choose the bus for their everyday journeys.

The Department for Transport (DfT) has awarded the county council nearly £50m of funding for its Bus Service Improvement Plan, aimed at improving bus services and infrastructure facilities across the county. The plan includes measures such as integrated travel hubs, new and more frequent services and bus priority infrastructure schemes such as the project at the hospital exit on Gayton Road. You can read more about our work on the Bus Service Improvement Plan by visiting The new Toucan crossing element is funded by King’s Lynn Borough Council.

The documents below detail exactly what we’re proposing and why and the accompanying plan shows what the project could look like on the ground.

After reviewing the proposals please answer the questions in the online survey on the following page.
