Ipswich Road (A140) bus lane near Hall Road

Norfolk County Council asked for feedback on proposed changes to the A140 Ipswich Road in Norwich, on the approach to its junction with Hall Road.


This project is one of several in Norfolk's Bus Service Improvement Plan. Our plan is designed to reduce congestion at existing pinch points on current routes by increasing capacity for buses.  

We propose adding a short length of bus lane on the approach to the traffic lights near the Hall Road junction on Ipswich Road.

The changes would:

  • Improve bus journey times and reliability for the Harford Park & Ride services
  • Benefit other services that use the route including buses to Diss, Harleston and Long Stratton
  • We are proposing no changes to walking and cycling facilities in the area.

Next Steps

The deadline for comments was Monday 29 January 2024. We will carefully consider all responses ahead of advertisement of the formal Traffic Regulation Order needed to deliver the project. This will be done in consultation with the local county council member and cabinet member, as appropriate. The webpage above will be kept up to date with the latest progress and information.

If approved, delivery is due to take place in summer 2024.


The Department for Transport (DfT) has awarded the county council nearly £50m of funding for its Bus Service Improvement Plan. The aim of our plan is to improve bus services and infrastructure facilities across the county. Our plan includes measures such as integrated travel hubs, new and more frequent services and bus priority infrastructure schemes such as this project on Ipswich Road.
