Have your say on northern distributor road at public exhibitions
- Credit: Copyright: Archant 2013
A series of exhibitions will give the public the chance to examine the latest plans for the proposed Norwich northern distributor road.
People will be able to make their comments on the £141.5m road, which would stretch from the A47 at Postwick to the A1067 Fakenham Road, at 16 public viewings between July 8 and August 9.
The revised plans include an extra roundabout on Fir Covert Road, on the section of road between the A140 and the A1067, after businesses in the area raised concerns.
The roundabout is the second change in junction arrangements in that section of the road, after a previous alteration removed the Fir Covert Road roundabout and moved it to where the NDR leaves the A1067.
Both roundabouts are included in the latest plans.

'We are now nearing the point where the plans will be ready for submission as part of the development consent application, but we are still listening and ready to take on board any comments made on these latest proposals.
'I hope people will take the opportunity to view the plans at the exhibitions and make their views known.
'Members of the NDR team will be able to help answer questions, and there are a number of ways in which people can submit comments.'
The exhibitions mark the launch of the formal consultation before submission of an application to the planning inspectorate for development consent.
Copies of the consultation documents are available at www.norfolk.gov.uk/tfn, where comments can be submitted until September 29.
