Ensuring Norwich gets the transport infrastructure it needs is a key issue that I am focusing on. It is important to me that local people get a say in how the future of our transport system changes. You may be aware that Norfolk County Council’s Environment, Development and Transport Committee approved four options for a potential Norwich Western Link. You can read more about these options here.
A public consultation on these routes will run between Monday 26 November 2018 and Friday 18 January 2019. During the consultation, people will be asked for their views on the options and these responses will help the council identify a preferred option for a Norwich Western Link in spring 2019.
You can find out more about the options and respond to the consultation online via www.norfolk.gov.uk/nwl from Monday 26 November. You can also respond in person, and ask any questions you may have, at a series of staffed events taking place in local communities throughout the consultation period.
If you have opinions about these options, please do take part in the consultation and let the County Council know what you think.
