Key aims and challenges

The scheme was funded by Persimmon Homes East Anglia under a Section 278 agreement relating to their White Rose Park development on the former site of the Royal Norwich Golf Club.

The main aim of the scheme was to form a new, permanent entrance to the development from Drayton High Road – one of the main roads into Norwich.

The works, including the construction of a right-turn lane and central refuges, took place on the live highway, while traffic management was used to enable the safe progression of the works with minimum disruption to highways users.

The second phase of the works involved widening the footway along a 600m stretch of Drayton High Road, north and south of the entrance to the development. New kerbs were installed and the highway was resurfaced and relined. Surfacing was undertaken under a shared road closure with an adjacent resurfacing scheme on the A1067.

Danaher & Walsh worked closely with Norfolk County Council and other stakeholders to allow the works to progress safely and effectively whilst minimising disruption.
