£1.5m Thetford roundabout
A market town on the South-west border of Norfolk could be the location of a revolution in the Agri-Tech and Biotech sectors. A 44-acre plot in Thetford has been allocated to the development of an enterprise centre for the past 30 years, but the project has fallen through on numerous occasions. In spite of this, recent improvements to nearby infrastructure has renewed hopes that the project may finally have a future. Last month, work began on building a £1.5million roundabout on the A1066 which would open up Thetford to Cambridge and Norwich via the A11. This follows news that the first phase of a 5,000-property development project is underway which could provide homes for prospective enterprise park employees.
