A47 North Tuddenham to Easton improvements
We’re upgrading the A47 between North Tuddenham and Easton in Norfolk to a dual carriageway. This will complete the dual carriageway between Norwich and Dereham, supporting economic growth and easing congestion in the area.
The North Tuddenham to Easton section of the A47 connects key economic growth areas of Norwich. The current road is unable to cope with the high traffic volume and there are limited opportunities to overtake slower moving vehicles on this single carriageway.
To address these issues, we’re upgrading the A47 between North Tuddenham and Easton in Norfolk to a dual carriageway. This will complete the dual carriageway between Norwich and Dereham, supporting economic growth and easing congestion in the area.
We're also proposing to build two new junctions. The first junction will be at Berry’s Lane and Wood Lane, and the second junction will be located at Blind Lane and Norwich Road. Because of these additions to the side roads, the Easton roundabout will be removed. These improvements will better connect side roads into the new dual carriageway.
This project aims to:
• help sustainable economic growth by supporting employment and residential development opportunities
• reduce congestion and delays, make journey times more reliable and increase the overall traffic capacity of the A47
• improve road safety for all road users
• help the road cope better with incidents such as collisions and breakdowns, as well as maintenance and extreme weather
The Development Consent Order (DCO) process was established by the Planning Act 2008 and is used for certain large and complex schemes (including highway improvements) that have been designated as a Nationally Significant Infrastructure Project (NSIP) by the Government.
Development Consent Order – Requirements Register
Requirements are conditions that have been included in the DCO, which control how the project must be implemented (constructed and maintained). Implementing the DCO in accordance with these conditions involves completing consultation and approval processes that have been defined in the DCO. These processes are referred to here and in the DCO as “discharging” the requirements.
This Requirements Register is a live document and will be updated as the process to discharge the requirements progresses.
This register will be maintained for three years following completion of the project. The register sets out:
- each requirement
- whether the requirement needs approval by the Secretary of State (or other duty holder)
- whether any approval has been applied for or given.
