Magdalen Road

August to November 2017

The scheme was designed to improve the Magdalen Road area for pedestrians and cyclists by:

  • Installing a separate cycle track on the west side of Magdalen Road between its junction with Guernsey Road and its junction with Sprowston Road
  • Creating a new layout for the signalised junction with Sprowston Road, including an independent signal phase for cyclists travelling south
  • Raising tables to provide level footpath crossings at the side roads of Albany Road, Shipstone Road, Knowesley Road and Clarke Road
  • Removing the 30-minute limited parking bay outside Nos. 38 to 50 and replacing with double yellow lines (to enable installation of the cycle track as above)
  • Installing a cycle-friendly ‘sinusoidal’ road hump outside No.108 Magdalen Road
  • Introducing a 20mph zone in a wide area surrounding Magdalen Road


A notice of these proposals was advertised in Norwich Evening News on Friday 20 January 2017, followed by a four-week public consultation.  View the full consultation details and plans.

The responses were presented to Norwich Highways Agency Committee on Thursday 16 March 2017.  View the meeting agenda and reports.
