A134 Tottenhill to Thetford, Local Safety Scheme

Norfolk County Council is undertaking a scheme which aims to improve road safety on the A134 between Tottenhill and Thetford.

The works will start on Monday 22 June 2020 and are planned to take 5 weeks to complete.

The works on the A134 between Tottenhill and Thetford will involve implementing two new 50mph speed limits, one on the Northwold bypass and the other on the section of road near Shouldham. We will also be putting in place raised ‘rumble’ lines at the edges of the road between Mundford and Thetford, and on the Stoke Ferry bypass, and improving road markings around a number of junctions along the route.

Due to the works involved, and to maintain a safe working environment and protect the public, the works will be completed under temporary traffic lights and will be in place 24 hours a day / 5 days a week while the work is underway. Localised mobile working will be used for all lining works.

Access to homes and businesses on all sections of road where the works are taking place will be maintained at all times, however there may be some short delays.

Access to properties within the works will be maintained for emergency services, and they will be informed that the road will be closed to through traffic so they will be able to plan accordingly. Please see attached plan highlighting areas of works.

The County Council thanks people for their patience while these road safety improvements are carried out.

The work which is estimated to cost £98,570 will be carried out by Norfolk County Council’s Community and Environmental Services Department and their contractors.
