That's the junction I'm talking about. Tried it earlier
in the week and it was fine except for a diversion due
to 'traffic calming' in Weston. I wonder why that's
needed....

The older I get...
The better I was....!!

Yes, that diversion is what I referred to when I posted that the route had been altered. It used to go straight through Weston Longville and hit the Fakenham road at Moreton. I think it is still possible to go through there but it is slow and also probably unfair on the residents.

Do you really think Wroxham NEEDS a bypass? Hardly methinks!!! I use Wroxham regularly and its only in the summer school holidays that it becomes an issue.

You could however do three things to help when there are issues
1) Ban right turns going northwards into Church Road or better still block it off and pedestrianise that first bit of Church Road.
2) Stop using the layby outside Mcdonalds as a bus stop. Roys are redeveloping the back and carpark - insist they incorporate a small bus station. After all lots of people use Roys and they can afford it. Ooops - forgot. You cannot tell Roys to do anything - they are too important.
3) Ban all deliveries after the bridge to those shops between 9am and 5pm or 8 and 6 They could cope if they wanted to!!!!

Problem solved!

A much easier solution - take away the bridge. Solves all problems, both land and water oriented.

Happy Christmas everyone  LOL

Let’s taken a trip down memory by lane. Bypasses years ago were done for fairly obvious reasons:
Aylsham, North Walsham, Stalham, Catfield and Potter Heigham for fairly obvious pinch points which restricted the flow of hgv traffic which was the route freight took following derailing. All bar the first mentioned took the disused railway, which in Walshams case is now a bain as the need for a new bypass is being muted.

Some later ones are slightly more difficult to fathom, Ormesby makes the drive to Yarmouth a breeze but dumps you mid caister bypass with an extra roundabout so probably no more value for money than a long Stratton one would be.

The ndr is a different proposition and ultimately about access for homes and that may be the business case that swings it for Stratton in the long run.

I avoid Hoveton in the summer months too but if it were to be bypassed I suspect a western route may fit better with housing growth. Other than that and a long low hgv detour it’s difficult to see what the justification would be. After all tourists shouldn’t be in a hurry and slowing them down to take in the sights increases the chance of them throwing the road atlas in and stopping off for a Big Mac, hiring a boat etc.

Plenty of places have fallen by the wayside courtesy of a by road, lets keep Wroxham busy and congested particularly in silly season!!
