View details of work that took place in Cringleford for phase 1 of the project.

July to August 2018

Details of work:

  • Traffic calming and implementation of a 20mph restriction
  • Widening the cycle track from the Cellar House pub to Newmarket Road to allow for two-way cycle flow
  • Increasing maximum stay to two hours in parking area outside the old Post Office
  • Installing double yellow lines on the remainder of the slip road and extending these further into Eaton Street
  • Moving the vehicle stop line back in Bluebell Road so buses and other large vehicles can turn left from Eaton Street more easily
  • Simplifying pedestrian crossings in the centre of Eaton
  • Resurfacing the carriageway and upgrading the junction with new traffic signals to improve efficiency for all users
  • Providing an on-carriageway feeder lane approaching the crossroads for cyclists on Eaton Street heading to the uphill slip road.  This will give cyclists a safer area to wait.
  • New cycle traffic signal for ahead cycles to be introduced on the Eaton Street (west) approach to allow cycles a green traffic signal in advance of general traffic.  This will give them a head start when going straight on towards the uphill slip road.
  • Installation of Eaton ‘gateway’ signs at Cringleford Bridge and Eaton Street slip road.
