Closed consultation: Southern area 20mph Speed Restriction Order and road hump notice 2018

Consultation closed 29 August 2018

This proposal will install:

  • 20mph speed limits in multiple areas in the south of Norwich.
  • traffic calming in Eaton Road consisting of 20mph roundels and sinusoidal (cycle-friendly) humps. There is also a proposal to change a section of residents’ permit parking with double yellow lines close to the entrance of City of Norwich School to reduce traffic congestion.
  • traffic calming on Church Lane consisting of a pedestrian refuge, 20mph roundels, footpath buildouts and priority give ways.
  • traffic calming on Greenways consisting of 20mph roundels, priority give ways and footpath buildouts.
  • traffic calming on Sandy Lane consisting of a mini-roundabout, pairs of speed cushions and 20mph roundels. There is also a proposal to install double yellow lines around the junctions on Sandy Lane, Astell Road, Coleburn Road and Theobald Road and also at bus stops on these roads to help access for the bus service.
  • traffic calming on South Park Avenue consisting of a pedestrian refuge, pairs of speed cushions and 20mph roundels.

These proposals are to slow traffic, making the area safer and more pleasant for cyclists and pedestrians. The associated traffic calming on the above roads is to encourage compliance with the speed restriction. This scheme is part of the Transport for Norwich initiative to improve safety for all road users.
