Consultation on proposals for Thorpe Hamlet - Rosary Road/Wolfe Road Traffic Calming & Area wide 20mph Speed Zone & Limits

Norfolk County Council and the Transport for Norwich (TfN) partnership are asking for feedback on proposed highway improvements in the Thorpe Hamlet area. It is also the intention to provide a 20mph speed limit covering much of the local area.

This project aims to reduce traffic speeds in areas of Thorpe Hamlet and improve safety for all road users. 

These improvements would be funded by the Department for Transport’s Transforming Cities Fund and a contribution from Norfolk County Council’s Local Member Fund. The Transforming Cities Fund can only be spent on improvements to the highway network.

We are aware there are presently some issues with non-compliance in respect of the recent changes on Thorpe Road and further remedial works to remedy this are already in hand. Further details of these works will be communicated to local residents in due course.

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 below please answer the questions in the online survey on the following page.

What happens next

The deadline for consultation responses is 17th September 2023

We will carefully consider if the proposals require amendments. The cabinet member will then make a decision based on the feedback we have received and, if approved, to implement the proposed changes, new Traffic Regulation Orders and Notices will be needed in relation to the new 20mph speed limits, raised table and sinusoidal humps. It is hoped construction would begin in early 2024.

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