St Crispins Road crossing

April to August 2018

Details of work

  • Installation of a direct toucan crossing for pedestrians and cyclists across the ring road between St Georges Street and Botolph Street
  • Filling in of the existing subway to replace it with the surface crossing
  • Installation of segregated walking and cycling paths on either side of St Crispin's Road
  • Removal of subway entrance walls, providing space for landscaping and planting.

Reasons for work

  • Provide a high quality, at grade, quick and more direct crossing for pedestrians and cyclists across the inner ring road
  • Create a more accessible crossing for those with mobility issues
  • Remove the ongoing maintenance costs of the existing subway, such as cleaning, lighting, repair work and pumping out water
  • Provide an important link in the yellow pedalway, which crosses the city between Lakenham in the south and Norwich International Airport in the north


We carried out a consultation on proposals for the project with Norwich City Council. The results were reported to the Norwich Highways Agency Committee at City Hall on Thursday 16 March 2017.
