The development of a Norwich Western Link, to connect the Broadland Northway, formerly known as the Northern Distributor Road (NDR), from the A1067 to the A47 west of Norwich, is one of our top infrastructure priorities. Since construction began on the Broadland Northway there have been sustained calls to fill in the ‘missing link’.
We have supported the development of a Norwich Western Link for a number of years and County Council members agreed in 2016 to include it as one of the County’s top three major infrastructure priorities, alongside the Great Yarmouth Third River Crossing and the Long Stratton Bypass.
We have now published four shortlisted road options for a Norwich Western Link, designed to improve travel between the A47 and the western end of Broadland Northway and tackle transport problems in this area. For more information on these options, see About the Norwich Western Link.
Our public consultation on these options ran between Monday 26 November 2018 and Friday 18 January 2019. All the responses to the consultation will be considered and will help us identify a preferred route for a Norwich Western Link later this year.
