Heartsease Lane proposed walking and cycling improvements

Norfolk County Council was recently awarded £1.2 million from the Department for Transport’s (DfT) Active Travel Fund to invest in local infrastructure projects that support the promotion of walking and cycling as an attractive and convenient transport mode for shorter journeys.

Bearing in mind changes in people’s travel habits during the global pandemic, this is an opportune time to encourage more people to walk or cycle, reduce congestion on our roads and deliver a wide range of health and environmental benefits to residents.

One of our proposals is to look at upgrading and replacing the existing Toucan crossing on Heartsease Lane which serves both the pink and purple pedalway routes in the Norwich cycling network with a fully segregated modern crossing for cyclists and pedestrians. In addition, the existing carriageway will be resurfaced. This project aims to provide a safer environment by providing a wider segregated crossing which will provide separation between pedestrians and cyclists.

In addition, we are proposing to provide ‘At any time’ waiting restrictions (double yellow lines) in the vicinity of the Heartsease Lane/Rider Haggard Road junction.
