Tombland and Upper King Street area

Started: August 2020
Completed: Summer 2021

The main aims of this project were to:

  • Improve walking and cycling links through the Tombland area and connect it to the railway station, Magdalen Street and the Norwich Lanes
  • Provide more space for people to access public transport and improve bus journey times
  • Make the area more accessible for disabled people, including people who are blind, visually impaired or have reduced mobility
  • Attract investment and boost the visitor economy by improving the quality and look of the area.


A consultation took place in February 2019 to help shape the final version of the scheme, which was approved by the Transport for Norwich Joint Committee in August 2019.

The overall project plans displayed on the link below include changes made to the proposals following feedback received as part of the consultation.

Work was completed in two phases. Detailed work plans for both phases of the project can be downloaded from the Plans box on this page.

This work is being funded with £2.5m from the Department for Transport's Transforming Cities Fund.
