A47 Update – urgent, please read!!!

The Parish Council were informed that at Easton Parish Council, this evening, Highways England would be attending and discussing the A47 proposed route between E Tuddenham and Easton. Four of your councillors attended, David Bishop, Linda and Roger Human and Terry Sapey (+ Maureen Sapey); residents of Taverham Road Honingham also attended. It was very interesting – more so for what wasn’t said (or confirmed) than what we were told. Easton naturally concentrated on the Easton roundabout, but we asked questions regarding Wood Lane, our Church and Taverham Road. It is of concern that at present the suggested route for the new A47 to cross the present A47 is right in front of the church – and could well take the form of a flyover. Wood Lane appears to have a roundabout at the bottom/Honingham end, which may save our residents of Wood Lane – but of course, there is still no firm evidence of where the NDR will join the A47, and could be Wood Lane. Taverham Road residents have grave concerns as to whether the new A47 will go through their land. We have invited Highways England to attend our Parish Council Meeting – and they may be able to attend our meeting next Monday, 11th Sept. If not it will be Oct 9th. We would urge all Honingham residents to attend the meeting on the 11th Sept, if  Highways England cannot make it we will let you know via website or Notice Boards and Phone Box.
