Yarmouth Road near Pound Lane, Norwich

Norfolk County Council asked for feedback on proposed changes to Yarmouth Road, near Pound Lane in Norwich.  

Overview 

This project is part of a series of improvements we're making in the city, aimed at improving bus journey times and reliability of services across our public transport network. We're using funding awarded to us by the Department for Transport for our Bus Service Improvement Plan to invest in infrastructure at strategic locations, relieving specific areas of congestion that affect buses so we can deliver better, more punctual services. Through these changes, along with funding for additional and extended services, the current £2 fare cap and zero-emission buses, we hope that more people will choose the bus for their everyday journeys into and around Norwich. 

This project is making changes to Yarmouth Road on its approach to the roundabout with Pound Lane. It is designed to create more space for buses and general traffic to help relieve congestion, which can cause delays for all road users. By improving flow for all traffic, this will reduce delays and improve journey times and punctuality for buses at the same time.
