NCC is consulting on its proposals for the new 3.9 mile dual carriageway road to connect the A47 to Broadland Northway west of Norwich, and associated measures that would be put in as part of the project.

There have been three consultation events at Barnham Broom, Weston Longville and Felthorpe in which hundreds of people come along to view the proposals and discuss them with members of the project team.

The last event is at the Costessey Centre this Friday (30 September) between 1pm and 8pm. This was due to take place on Friday 9 September but was postponed as a mark of respect following the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II the previous day.

The consultation closes at midnight on Sunday 9 October.

Before then, you can view the proposals on You can also request to be sent a paper copy of the consultation brochure and questionnaire by either emailing or ringing 0344 800 8020.
