Attleborough road project set for final stage
The fourth phase of the £4.5 million Transport for Attleborough project, which is set to improve all forms of transport and support planned growth in the town, is set to get under way this month.
The final phase of the project will improve cycling and walking facilities in London Road, helping to make journeys to school, homes and to the town centre easier in the future along this increasingly busy route.
Plans also include widening the pavements and converting them to a shared pedestrian and cycling facility, new paving, realigned junctions and a new traffic light controlled pedestrian and cycle crossing near to Chapel Road.
After receiving £4.5 million of Local Growth Fund cash from the New Anglia Local Enterprise Partnership, the Transport for Attleborough project begun in 2018, and the initial three phases have seen a number of changes to the layout of the town.
Streets have been widened and converted into two-way roads, busy car parks have been adjusted to make better use of space and improvements have been made to pedestrian facilities, all with the intention of improving accessibility in the town.
The fourth and final phase, which will be carried out by the community and environmental services department at Norfolk County Council and its contractors, will cost approximately £600,000, and is expected to be completed by early 2021.
