New access road to Marham Park to cut village traffic through Fornham All Saints
A new access road, is opening this afternoon hoping to reduce traffic flow through Fornham All Saints.
The new road, known as Marham Parkway, will deliver improved transport links for Marham Park’s residents while also reducing the traffic flow through the nearby village of Fornham All Saints.
The road will link the existing Tut Hill (B1106) with Mildenhall Road (A1101).
Bypassing the village of Fornham All Saints, the new road is expected to relieve the flow of traffic passing through Tut Hill and the village of Fornham All Saints.
The residents of Countryside’s Marham Park development will also benefit, given that Marham Parkway will provide speedier access to the A14 and eliminate the need to pass through Fornham All Saints.
Additionally, the new road will enable a new bus route to pass through the development, improving transport links for residents to an even greater extent.
Cllr Beccy Hopfensperger, local county councillor for Thingoe North, said: "I am very pleased to support this new road link, providing a much-needed bypass around Fornham All Saints.
"This will make the village safer and quieter for residents."
A large green area spanning approximately 40 acres, will run down the west side of the newly opened road, maintaining a clear separation between Fornham All Saints and Bury St. Edmunds.
Acting as a natural buffer, this will also provide a parkland environment for Marham Park’s residents to use for exercise and an outdoor playing environment for children.
Countryside, a UK developer, has worked in collaboration with Suffolk County Council to open Marham Parkway.
