The development of a Norwich Western Link, to connect the new Norwich 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 NDR 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.
A Norwich Western Link could give residents, businesses, visitors and people travelling through the area a number of important benefits, including:
We are very mindful of the potential environmental impact of creating a link between the NDR and A47 and are in discussion with environmental bodies in order to proceed with the project in such a way that cares for and protects the natural environment.
