exists to investigate and, in partnership with others, help put in place a cohesive public transport structure for the benefit of all who live and work in Norfolk as well as visitors to the county.
The Norfolk Orbital Railway would link existing lines of the national network with standard gauge privately owned railways to enable greater access to public transport for the communities served and increased revenue earning potential for all the constituent partners.
Plans include linking Holt town centre with the NNR, assisting with the extension of the MNR to Fakenham, connecting Fakenham back to Holt (and the NNR) and planning a permanent connection at Sheringham between the NNR and Network Rail.
The company, and its supporting trust also maintains a watching brief, where possible, to work for the protection of former and potential rail infrastructure so that their eventual availability for transport use should not be lost.
Successful land purchase completed
Appeal launched to fund further purchases
You may have read articles and comments elsewhere suggesting that our project has not reached agreement with NNR over the plan to join the present terminus to a new station in Holt town.
This is not the case and we are making the signed agreement available HERE so that those interested might read it.
Supporters of both projects may also have seen the recent planning application that NNR have submitted to the District Council for erection of a new education facility at their Holt station. The accompanying plans to this application clearly show the route set aside for the extended track alongside this building to enable connection with the extension to Holt Town, and this is also made clear in the documentation.
