Bowthorpe Road safety improvements

Start: Monday 10 February 2020

Completed: Wednesday 11 March 2020

The existing signalled junction at Dereham Road/Bowthorpe Road previously had no dedicated pedestrian crossing facilities, which were campaigned for by local residents. Additionally, the footpath across the front of the former Earl of Leicester site was limited, causing further inconvenience for pedestrians. Following an assessment in 2018 a recommendation was made for signalised pedestrian crossings to be installed at this junction.

Project details

This scheme provided pedestrian crossings on all arms of the junction and the missing sections of footpath through the following measures:

  • Construction of new signalised pedestrian crossings on Dereham Road, Bowthorpe Road and Hotblack Road.
  • Construction of new sections of footpath on Dereham Road and Bowthorpe Road, adjacent to the old Earl of Leicester site.
  • Resurfacing of the carriageway.
  • Footpath resurfacing and kerb realignment to create widened footpaths on the southern side of Dereham Road.
  • Provision of informal parking bays on Dereham Road to encourage on-road parking.
  • Alterations to road markings.
  • Minor alterations to street lighting.
