Video Final bill for the NDR revealed

Monday, March 25, 2019

The final bill for the Norwich Northern Distributor Road will come in under the revised budget of £205m, say council bosses.

The rise in the number of people killed or seriously injured in crashes on Norfolk's roads has led to calls for more urgency to tackle the tragic toll.

One of Norwich's busiest roads will be closed in one direction for two nights so it can be resurfaced, with drivers facing a lengthy diversion during the work.

Average speed cameras are set to be installed on the A149 between King's Lynn and Snettisham this summer

Miles of some of the most beautiful treks through Norfolk can now be explored 'virtually', after council bosses joined forces with Google to capture 360 degree images of the trails.

A councillor has said he is sick of discussing the long-awaited third river crossing for Great Yarmouth and says the council should "just get on with it, rather than thinking about seagulls".

Scores of communities across Norfolk are to benefit from more than £390,000 of transport investment from the county council.

A public consultation has revealed most people support plans for a third river crossing in Great Yarmouth.

Splash the cash on the western link - this is the main message from a consultation into joining the Northern Distributor Road to the A47 west of Norwich.

Drivers and other road users are facing disruption and diversions around Norwich this month, as a multi-million pound power project and more than £500,000 worth of resurfacing work get under way on the city's streets.

A proposal to make Great Yarmouth a terminus for a new Stansted airport rail line is "unlikely" until at least 2025, a Norfolk county councillor has said.

Transport bosses have found little to no support for the introduction of cameras and a reduced speed limit along the Acle Straight, after it was considered - and quickly dropped - as one way to improve transport in Great Yarmouth.

Work on dualling the Acle Straight could begin in 2023, campaigners have been told.

Norwich City Council will not be considering whether to reverse a recent decision to back the proposed road to link the Northern Distributor Road to the A47 - after a motion seeking a u-turn was withdrawn.

They are the bane of many a driver's day, but new figures show Norfolk County Council is actually the fastest council to repair potholes in East Anglia.

A £4.4m roundabout is to replace a junction at a notorious crash blackspot could be built by the autumn, after the scheme was granted planning permission.

New speed cameras are to be introduced on the road where the Duke of Edinburgh was involved in a car crash.

An attempt by campaigners to hold a minute's silence for victims of climate change at a council meeting came undone - when councillors ignored their request and continued the meeting.

All four potential routes for the Norwich Northern Distributor Road Western Link will cause "unnaceptable" damage to vital habitats for animals, plants and birds, wildlife watchdogs have warned.

A crash blackspot could be made safer thanks to a new £1.2m roundabout, after it was picked to benefit from a share of £20m being pumped into Norfolk's roads.

Money for a £1m revamp of Norwich bus station, a new £1.5m roundabout and more cycle routes is being sought from a multi-million pound pot of government cash.

The contractor who will develop Great Yarmouth's third river crossing has been announced by Norfolk County Council.

Almost 600 people have told council bosses how they think the Norwich Northern Distributor Road should join the A47 to the west of the city.

The final bill for the Norwich Northern Distributor Road might not be known until six months from now, it has emerged.

Sky-high fares, an unreliable service, and cheaper alternative transport options are all being blamed for a significant drop in rail passengers in Great Yarmouth over the last five years.

Ramblers, dog walkers, runners and cyclists have been prevented from crossing a bridge along a scenic path after it was closed following health and safety concerns.

Council bosses have insisted they are well-stocked to keep Norfolk's roads gritted this winter, but will be hoping there for no repeat of the Beast from the East.

Work starts tomorrow on the first of several schemes funded by government millions.

A consultation has today been launched on possible routes for the link to join the Norwich Northern Distributor Road to the A47.

Visitors to Great Yarmouth will be treated to a smarter welcome following a major revamp of the town's train station forecourt worth £710,000.

People can soon have their say over the possible routes for the link to join the Norwich Northern Distributor Road to the A47.
