Your views on our proposed changes to St Williams Way, Norwich

Closed 28 Mar 2021

Opened 5 Mar 2021


Norfolk County Council is putting forward proposals for highway changes to St Williams Way in Norwich

Bearing in mind changes in people’s travel habits during the global pandemic, this is an opportune time to encourage more people to walk or cycle, reduce congestion on our roads and deliver a wide range of health and environmental benefits to residents.

Safety concerns have been highlighted for a number of years, that parking within the existing advisory cycle lanes on St Williams Way forces those that are cycling to swerve into the main carriageway of this busy stretch of road.

This project aims to provide a safer environment for all road users by providing a wider unobstructed route for cycling and an increased separation between vehicles and cycles. This will be achieved by extending the recently installed lightly segregated mandatory cycle lane on St Williams Way, from where it currently ceases, just west of Thor Loke, to around Margetson Avenue.

Before progressing with the legally required Temporary Traffic Regulation Orders associated with these proposals the public are invited to comment.

Please find more detailed plans at the bottom of this webpage.

If successfully supported and funded, this scheme will be delivered by Norfolk County Council using money from the Department for Transport's Active Travel Fund.

These proposed changes are the first in a series measures being put forward across the county under the Active Travel Fund
