To seek Members views on Norfolk County
Council's proposed route options for the Norwich Western
Cabinet considered and approved their preference to support Option D only (with the Easton prong) based on the benefits to transport access from villages in the north east of the District.
Reasons for the decision:
Route Options C and D be recommended as these routes provide the greatest benefit in transport capacity terms of the options presented when considered against the forecast cost.
It is considered that the high forecast traffic carrying capacity indicates that options C and D will result in the least amount of traffic using other rural routes. The delivery of the scheme is also of key importance to Breckland and it is important that this is highlighted to Norfolk County Council as part of the consultation process.
Alternative options considered:
1) Members endorse route options C and D as the preferred routes in its response to the Western Link Consultation.
2) Members endorse one of the alternative route options as the basis of the Council’s response to the Western Link Consultation.
