Norfolk transport plan delayed by government decarbonisation | Eastern Daily Press
A blueprint for Norfolk’s transport links over the next 15 years has been delayed after the council was forced to re-examine its proposals.
The fourth local transport plan (LTP) was due to be examined by Norfolk County Council on Monday but was pulled by the council leader.
The LTP covers Norfolk-wide plans, such as improving highway conditions, encouraging walking and cycling and delivering major projects like the Norwich Western Link, Long Stratton bypass and Great Yarmouth third river crossing.
Andrew Proctor, the Conservative leader of the council, said he was no longer moving the recommendations forward after the government published a transport decarbonisation plan.
The government’s plans require councils to set out how their LTPs will deliver carbon reductions in transport in line with national carbon budgets.
