Cycling and walking

Temporary closure of Cow Tower section of river walk 

The Cow Tower section of the river walk will be temporarily closed from Monday 22 February for a week so that remedial work can be carried out to trees overhanging the footpath.

The affected section of the walk runs from Whitefriars Bridge to the Red Lion public house. 

We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

Norwich has one of the highest levels of walking and cycling in the country.

It is a great way to integrate exercise into daily life – getting to work, study and the shops. More people walking and cycling will help to combat traffic congestion and cut down on air pollution.

Making Norwich a safer, even more pleasant place to walk and cycle in is an important part of the city and county council's transport strategy and investment continues to be made into new projects.
