A public meeting is being held in January to gauge support for a roundabout on the A47 Broadend Road junction.

Walsoken Parish Council is holding the meeting in the village hall on Friday, January 24 at 7pm.

The purpose of the meeting is to gauge and gather public support for a roundabout at the junction where several people have lost their lives. The council is also looking to form an independent action group for safety improvements at the junction.

Several high profile people have been invited to the meeting, including MPs Elizabeth Truss, Stephen Barclay, Norman Lamb, Richard Bacon and Henry Bellingham, Transport Secretary Patrick McLoughlin and Chief Inspector Spinks from Norfolk and Suffolk Roads Policing.

The campaign for a roundabout was starting by Norfolk mother Bridget Wall, whose son Adam died at the junction in 2002.
