Infrastructure

Transport

A modern and efficient transport system is key to our future success. We need a number of vital improvements to deliver a fully-integrated transport network throughout the region.

New Anglia LEP is working hard with partners in businesses, local authorities and education institutions to make us a mobile and accessible world-class economy.

The Integrated Transport Strategy for Norfolk and Suffolk was adopted by the New Anglia LEP board and partners in summer 2018. It sets out our ambitions, our collective goals for delivery and how we might see them brought to fruition. You can read the Integrated Transport Strategy here.

Evidence was gathered from both the Norfolk and Suffolk Economic Strategy Evidence Report and the East Integrated Transport Strategy: Development of Long-Term Economic Scenarios Report

Local Transport Body - The New Anglia Local Transport Body has been set up to identify the priorities and deliver major transport improvements across Norfolk and Suffolk.

Great Eastern Rail Campaign - New Anglia LEP is leading the Great Eastern Rail Campaign for investment on the Norwich to London main line.

New Anglia LEP is part of Transport East, a forum that will shape the area’s transport ambitions. The forum includes local councils, Highways England, Network Rail and Local Enterprise Partnerships as well as other strategic partners such as ports, airports, rail and bus operators from across the East of England.

Transport East will ensure that our transport network:

  • is innovative and prepared for future developments
  • enables housing growth
  • enables the efficient and effective movement of people and goods to boost economic growth
  • ensures that growth in the East is sustainable, encompassing all forms of transport including, public transport, walking and cycling.
  • ensures that the East of England is a place where people want to live, work and visit,
  • enables people to live independently and to make the most of opportunities as they arise

Broadband and Digital Connectivity

We have invested in the rollout of superfast broadband across Norfolk and Suffolk.

Through our Growth Deal, we have invested £5million in projects in both counties to support an increase in the extensive network of fibre cables and roadside cabinets to enable homes and businesses to have access to faster broadband.
