Connecting the Norwich Lanes - have your say

We want your views on changes to how the Norwich Lanes area functions and feels.

The Transport for Norwich partnership are proposing to do this through a series of projects, which aim to:

  • Make it safer and easier to get around on foot or by bike
  • Support outdoor hospitality and boost the local economy
  • Improve air quality

A range of inter-connected schemes makes up the overall vision for the area and proposals include:

  • A new riverside footbridge between Duke Street and St Georges Street
  • Making the temporary measures to remove general traffic on St Benedicts Street and Exchange Street permanent
  • A new cycle track and crossing facilities on St Andrews Street
  • Creating a better environment for enjoying the St Giles Street area on foot

These are just some of the plans we’re putting forward to make the most of this fantastic city destination so read on to find out more and how to share your views on its future.


The Department for Transport has awarded Norfolk County Council funding from the Transforming Cities Fund (TCF) and the money is currently being invested in a series of sustainable transport infrastructure projects through the Transport for Norwich partnership.

This work includes the proposal to deliver a number of strategically related schemes as part of a programme, which we’ve called ‘Connecting the Norwich Lanes’. This programme will bring the TCF-funded schemes together with those funded from a variety of other sources to allow a co-ordinated approach to consultation, design and delivery.


The deadline for consultation responses is Monday 9 August 2021.

How to comment

  • View the proposals below and complete the brief online survey to share your thoughts on the proposals overall or comment on the detailed elements via the surveys specific to each area
  • Hard copies of plans and surveys can be requested by emailing
  • Large font and other formats are also available on request
  • You can also email us to book a meeting slot with relevant members of the project team if you have queries or wish to discuss proposals in more detail. These meetings can be conducted by Zoom or telephone but will be kept to 15 minute slots to ensure they are available to all.

Next steps

The feedback received on each of the project areas will then be analysed and, where appropriate, the plans revised in response. The points raised through the consultation will then be reported back to local councillors along with the final proposals for scheme delivery.

This project web page will be kept up to date with the latest information, progress and relevant committee dates.
