Norwich Western Link Consultation – Open until 18th January 2019

A public consultation on the four shortlisted options for a Norwich Western Link is now open.
Norfolk County Council wants to create a Norwich Western Link to improve travel between the A47 and the western end of Broadland Northway (formerly the Northern Distributor Road) and to tackle transport problems in the area. We published four potential routes for a Norwich Western Link earlier this month and we’ve now made further information about them available to coincide with the consultation opening.
You can find out more about the options online via or by coming to one of our staff events taking place in local communities throughout the consultation period. A full list of these events is below.
Once you have looked through this information, there are a number of ways you can respond to the consultation. If you are responding on behalf of an organisation or in an official capacity, we would encourage you to your response in writing, as follows:

by post to Norwich Western Link, Infrastructure Delivery Team, Norfolk County Council, County Hall, Floor 2, Martineau Lane, Norwich, NR1 2DH
You can also respond online by completing our consultation questionnaire via or in person at one of our consultation events.

It’s really important we receive your views on our four options for a Norwich Western Link – all the consultation responses will be used to help us identify a preferred route for the Norwich Western Link in Spring 2019.
