Norfolk County Council has confirmed the formal award of the contract for the construction of Norwich Northern Distributor Road to the international infrastructure group Balfour Beatty.

Work on site has progressed well over the past 6 weeks and took a significant step forward on 16 October with the opening of the new A47 ‘off slip’ and the new bridge. The changes to the road layout will mean significant alterations to the traffic flows in and around Broadland Business Park and the new Postwick Hub access roads as the construction works move into the final phases. Completion of the new junction works is expected by mid December.


Work has concentrated on the new bridge, the A1042 Oaks lane roundabout and the new signalised junction. The new bridge is taking shape with the concrete deck complete, both of the edge beams cast and the posts for the parapet railings being installed. Overnight road closures of the A47 will enable the removal of the temporary formwork and completion of the paintwork.

The traffic management of the A47 to the east of the new bridge will be removed shortly and the eastbound ‘on slip’ will come into full operation.
