Consultation on proposals for Southtown Road, Great Yarmouth

Norfolk County Council is asking for feedback on proposed changes to Southtown Road. 

This project is part of a series of improvements we’re making around Norfolk, 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 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 and the current £1.50 fare cap across the wider Great Yarmouth area, we hope that more people will choose the bus for their everyday journeys in and around the town.

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 this project along Southtown Road. You can read more about our work on the Bus Service Improvement Plan by visiting

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.

What happens next

The deadline for comments is Tuesday 28 May and we will carefully consider all responses ahead of advertisement of the formal Traffic Regulation Orders needed to deliver the project. This will be done in consultation with the local county council member and cabinet member, as appropriate.

The project web page will be kept up to date with the latest information.
