Norfolk County Council spent £75,000 on the first stage of a feasibility study last year which showed a tunnel option was possible although a bridge option was cheaper.
In April, a second stage of investigations will begin, costing about £375,000, to continue to look into both options. It will seek to find the best option in terms of cost, impact on the environment, impact on port operations in the harbour and regeneration of the area.
The final stage three will include a detailed design ready for a sound business case submission to government in a bid to secure funding. Building work would start in 2013.
