Have Your Say on Proposed Norwich Improvements
Transport for Norwich are currently proposing two schemes out for public consultation to improve transport links and access for pedestrian/cyclists within Norwich. The resutls of a recent consultation on St Williams Way have also been published.
A quick overview of each are below along with links for you to follow to find more information and have your say on each scheme.
One of the proposals is to look at upgrading and replacing the existing Toucan crossing on Heartsease Lane which serves both the pink and purple pedalway routes in the Norwich cycling network with a fully segregated modern crossing for cyclists and pedestrians. In addition, the existing carriageway will be resurfaced. This project aims to provide a safer environment by providing a wider segregated crossing which will provide separation between pedestrians and cyclists. More info.
Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital Transport Hub - The aim of this project is to provide a new bus interchange close to the outpatients entrance that increases the capacity for buses, resolves congestion and reduces conflict with vulnerable users of the disabled car parking area. In addition, there is a proposal to introduce a bike share facility to strengthen the hub’s provision and increase passenger capacity. More info.
