A prior information notice (PIN) has been published by Norfolk County Council for the opportunity to build the Long Stratton bypass.
The Long Stratton bypass will be a 3.9km single carriageway highway scheme to the east of the town designed to remove the through traffic on the A140 from the town centre.
Construction will involve three new roundabouts, two new junction arrangements and two new overbridges, – one vehicular and one pedestrian.
Norfolk County Council are working with South Norfolk District Council, Norfolk Homes and Norfolk Land. The construction of the bypass is linked to the aims and objectives of the Long Stratton Area Action Plan which supports the delivery of housing and employment in the area.
The council recently announced that the original £37.44m cost estimate had risen by £8.79m to £46.23m due to construction cost inflation.
Construction is planned to begin in early 2024 with plans for the road to open to traffic before the end of 2025.
