Broadland Gate is located at The Postwick Hub which forms the initial stage of the proposed Norwich Northern Distributor Road (NNDR), which will run from the Postwick junction to Norwich International Airport and the A1064 Fakenham Road.

Transport secretary Patrick McLoughlin has agreed to grant a development consent order for the 12.5-mile NNDR, which will stretch from the A1067 Fakenham Road at Attlebridge in the west to Postwick in the east.

Business leaders have hailed the news as a potential £1.3bn shot in the arm for Norfolk’s economy, while council leaders said it would create new homes and jobs, as well as speeding up traffic. Edward Olley of Ifield Estates said ‘This is excellent news and will open up great opportunities for much needed employment and housing in North-East Norwich. It will also without doubt make Ifield Estates Broadland Gate scheme one of the most prominent and accessible in the County’.

The decision to grant development consent for the road came following a public inquiry in Norwich last year, where all sides got the chance to convince a panel of inspectors whether the road should go ahead or not.
By Car
Broadland Gate will be one of the most accessible commercial areas in the region. Lying at the apex of the existing southern by-pass, it is within 15 minutes of the A11 south to the A14 and M11. With the completion of the NNDR, Broadland Gate will be the key junction and become the preferred route to the airport and north Norfolk.

There is also a Park & Ride service on the Postwick junction which Norfolk County Council intend to enlarge significantly.
By Bus
Broadland Way, on the eastern boundary of Broadland Gate, is currently served by bus routes 17/17A, linking South Tuckswood and Norwich City Centre, housing the main bus and railway stations. In the morning peak, there are four buses per hour.
By Train

Norwich (Thorpe) Station is about four miles from Broadland Gate, with regular services to London Liverpool Street (1 hour 57 mins), Peterborough (1 hour 30 mins), Cambridge (45 minutes), as well as the East Anglia rail network.

Improvements to the existing cycling and walking public transport routes will significantly enhance the connectivity in and around the scheme.

Broadland Gate will be easily accessible to cyclists and pedestrians, with a network of cycle ways and paths around and through it, enhancing the environment for those working there.

Norwich International Airport offers year-round scheduled flights to destinations such as Amsterdam, Manchester, Aberdeen and Edinburgh, plus seasonal charters to a number of Mediterranean locations, Bulgaria, the Channel Islands and Tenerife.
