  • Hello @Luciopercia - Your reply interested me, but we're looking 'not' to rely on Norwich - o.k., maybe occasional daytrips. Although, if I get my way - trips to Norwich will require overnight accomodation or more!

  • Just come back after a week away and there appears to be no progress whatsoever. Is there no incentive to finish the project early?

  • What a joke these contractors could have completed this job a month ago if they had put in a decent days work. Never seen such a group of men with there bright jackets doing nothing for such a long time

  • @biglingers I have just made the move in th eopporsite direction. The convenience of a 20 minute walk into the city or at worst a £2.60 bus ride is bliss compared to the usual queueing on an arterial route into Norwich. And if the weather is warm I can have a cold beer in a pub garden on my way home if the weather is warm! Im afraid we have to accept that Norwich is what it is .. a small city hampered by a compressed internal road system that is having to deal with an ever burgeoning number of road users. Whilst I am loathe to go OTT and sing the praises of the council, I struggle to see what really can be done to improve the lot of the commuter and occasional city driver.

  • Remarkable - someone's got something right at last in Norwich! - Now let's see what Worstbus (sorry Firstbus) make of it! Wonder what the excuse they will trot out now for late buses? For my critics, I have sold my house and plan to move to civilisation - outside the outer ring rd., make what you can of that - how long will it take you?
