David Bishop, Chair of Honingham parish Council, has received this update from Highways England following the discussion at our Parish Council Meeting:
In our meeting on 11th September at the Honingham Village Hall we have unintentionally misinformed you regarding the junction at the existing Easton Roundabout.
More specifically, our team stated that the roundabout at Easton junction will be retained in the proposed new A47. This is not true according to our current plan and please accept our sincere apologies for this mistake.
The plan is to build a roundabout at the intersection of the new A47 with Blind Lane and two link roads to the south of the new roundabout. The link roads will connect to the existing Norwich Rd Roundabout to the west and Dereham Rd to the east. This is reflected in the plan that we shared with you in that meeting and in the email afterwards.
I would like to thank you for your feedback and I hope this provides satisfactory clarification to you and the Honingham Parish Council. In addition, I would be grateful if you could share this with the parishioners as it should help allay many of their concerns.
If you have any other queries please feel free to contact us on our team inbox.
