A140 Long Stratton: Hempnall Crossroads Junction Improvement Traffic Management Information

The above scheme to replace the existing crossroads junction with a roundabout will start on 20 May 2019, with preliminary work taking place from 7 May. The scheme will help to unlock economic growth and development in the area, improve road safety at a junction with a history of accidents and improve access from side roads onto the A140.

The roundabout will be built to the west of the existing crossroads in order to keep disruption to a minimum. Traffic management arrangements are as follows:

7 May – 20 May: mandatory 30mph speed limit and lane closure on A140 between 8pm – 6am

20 May – 1 November: mandatory 30mph speed limit on A140 24 hours a day

Further details of other necessary traffic management will be publicised as the scheme progresses.

The scheme is expected to cost £4.57m, with £3.05m funding from the Department for Transport and £650,000 from New Anglia Local Enterprise Partnership’s Growth Deal with central Government. The remainder will come from the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) and Norfolk County Council.
