Do we need a Norwich Western Link?

Do we need a Norwich Western Link? (Information from Norfolk County Council)

When Norfolk County Council announced plans to build the Norwich Northern Distributor Road (A1270) north and east of the city, a lot of people said they were concerned about transport issues to the west of Norwich. Many wanted the council to fill in what they saw as a ‘missing link’ between the Fakenham Road (A1067) and the A47.

The County Council will be running a public consultation between Tuesday, 8 May and Tuesday, 3 July 2018 and, at this stage, they would like to know your views on any transport issues that exist to the west of the city. This is your chance to have your say and help to determine what, if anything, needs to be done to improve transport links or provision in this part of the county – so make sure you take the opportunity to respond to the consultation.

You can find out more and respond to the consultation online at www.norfolk.gov.uk/nwl from Tuesday, 8 May. Or you can come along to one of the nine consultation events being held throughout May and June, where you can speak to County Council staff and respond to the consultation in person.

The consultation events will be held from 10.30am to 8pm each day (with the exception of the Taverham event, which will finish at 7pm) and the venues and dates are as follows:

Ringland Village Hall Thursday 10 May
Hockering Village Hall Thursday 17 May
Hall for all, Weston Longville Tuesday 22 May
Easton Village Hall Thursday 31 May
Taverham Village Hall Tuesday 5 June
The Forum, Norwich Wednesday 13 and Thursday 14 June
Costessey Community Centre Monday 18 June
Hellesdon Parish Office Tuesday 26 June

Radio Norfolk Treasure Quest comes to Honingham again

This Sunday’s edition of Treasure Quest (28th January 2018) has come to Honingham again, we reckon the 4th time? The clue was quite difficult to work out – something about an old actor, and a backwards honour (remove “our”) but they made it! Photos below of Richard Whitely finding the clue, put there by Paul Blyth.

New Notice Board for Fellowes Road

The new Notice Board has been put in place today in Fellowes Road. Thank you David Bishop, Tony Roberts, and Derek for all your hard work 😊

sadly the dog mess around the notice board is absolutely disgusting…..

NDR Update

Here’s a special Christmas delivery for everyone that uses the roads around the north of Norwich: 7.5km of brand-new dual carriageway!

Yes, in spite of all that the weather threw at us a week ago, the next section of the NDR will be open on Thursday morning (21st), from the A140 Cromer Road to the A1151 Wroxham Road, The best part of five more miles.

Thanks for all the patience shown during all the work – most recently on the A140 Cromer Road. The opening of the next section of NDR will make life a lot easier there. It should also start to reduce traffic on Fifers Lane and Norwich ring road, although we need the last section through to Postwick and the A47 to feel the full benefit.

But with the 6km from Fakenham Road already open, anyone coming in that way for work at, say, Rackheath Industrial Estate will have had their daily journey completely transformed!

Here’s a link to the Transport Matters newsletter that has more information:

Bellfolk Open Evening

Bellfolk Handbell Ringers are hosting an open evening on Thursday 7th December at 7.30 p.m in Honingham Village Hall. It’s their usual practice night and they will be playing mostly music for Christmas along with a few other concert pieces. They will be using all their bells, not just the 12 that they use when they play outside.  It’s a very informal evening, there’s no charge to attend, and coffee, tea and mince pies will be available. There may also be a chance for people to “have-a-go”.  Everyone is welcome so please pop along and see what they get up to.
