NPIF funding bid for the A140 Hempnall crossroads improvement. Long Stratton

A140/B1527 Hempnall Crossroads NPIF Bid.

Norfolk County Council have said they need to improve the junction to allow future growth and proposed developments and to address safety concerns.

The Long Stratton Area Action Plan calls for 1,800 houses at Long Stratton and about 9.5ha of employment land. The A140 already carries high flows of traffic at high speeds. There are long delays for traffic exiting side roads at the priority junction at Hempnall and there have been 8 accidents in the last 5 years. By 2026 the junction will have reached capacity, making existing problems worse and affecting growth.

Norfolk County Council plan to upgrade an existing four arm priority staggered junction on the A140 Norwich to Ipswich road to a four arm roundabout.
