Norwich Western Link Road

Development of the Norwich Western Link Road continues to progress but it is still causing problems for environmental campaigners.

The link road is designed to complete the ‘outer Norwich Ring Road’ by joining together the Norwich southern bypass with the Broadland Northway. The new 4 mile stretch of road is planned to make a connection between the A1067 at Taverham and the A47 at Honingham, west of the city.

The new road is set to cost upwards of £200m and the developers with Norfolk County Council say the road will bring both economic and environmental benefit to the region. But the new link road will cross the Wensum Valley in the Ringland Hills area and environmental campaigners claim the new road is unnecessary, overly expensive and will damage the ecosystem of a precious landscape.
