A140 Long Stratton: Hempnall Crossroads Junction Improvement

A140 Long Stratton: Hempnall Crossroads Junction Improvement

Traffic Management Information

Preliminary work to replace the existing Hempnall crossroads with a roundabout is underway. The roundabout will be built to the west of the existing crossroads to minimise disruption.

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.

To allow utility diversion work to take place safely, the B1527 Hempnall Road will be closed at its junction with A140 Norwich Road for two days on 21-22 May 2019. The closure is expected to be in place from 6am on Tuesday 21 May until 8pm on Wednesday 22 May. An official signed diversion route via A140, A143 and B1332 will be in place (please see attached for details). The County Council thanks people for their patience while this improvement work is carried out.

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