The traffic calming scheme for the A1067 through the village is due to commence in the week beginning 19 August. The scheme was put forward by the Parish Council within the 2018 – 2019 Parish Partnership Initiative which is administered by Norfolk County Council with the aim of delivering local highway improvements. The concern of vehicles regularly exceeding the speed limit was discussed with officers from NCC and the scheme for the imminent passive traffic calming measures evolved.
The A1067 is an arterial principal route through the county and is not suitable for physical traffic calming measures. Physical measures provide additional noise and pollution for local residents and can be unpopular with the emergency services and transport providers. Passive measures reinforce speed messages to drivers and so an overall reduction in average traffic speeds is achieved. View the plan of the scheme below
It is intended that work will be carried out at night in order to minimise any inconvenience.
