St Stephens and Chapel Field North

​A new traffic management plan for the St Stephens and Chapelfield North area will improve sustainable travel in the city centre.

This £1.45m plan is part of the Transport for Norwich strategy, which includes many different traffic management measures.

Traffic management

Norwich is a growing city and its traffic flow needs to be managed accordingly. Most city and county bus services converge on St Stephens Street, which suffers from congestion, causing delays.
The planned work will give buses priority while pedestrians, cyclists and taxis will also see benefits. Cars will still have full access to the city’s existing parking sites and multi storey car parks, without congesting these areas.

Planned works

Road works will take place in the St Stephens Street and Chapel Field North area from 7 July until late 2014 when the project will be completed.

For detailed information about the planned scheme currently under construction, please see the project consultation web page.

More information

We will keep the public informed of road works, any temporary and permanent road closures and diversions. We will liaise with those who live or work in the project area and issue a regular newsletter.
