A number of small highways schemes in West Norfolk from footways to bus shelters could get the go ahead if a recommendation is approved next week.
Norfolk County Council’s cabinet is on Monday being asked to approve 153 town and parish highways schemes across the county, representing a £919,000 investment.
The council received 160 bids for contributions towards projects as part of its parish partnership scheme. Projects include vehicle activated road signs, bus shelters, footpaths and signage.
This year, the county council is set to provide £401,000. With match funding from parish and town councils and, subject to a decision from the safety camera partnership, this could bring total investment up to £919,000.
Councillor Martin Wilby, cabinet member for highways, infrastructure and transport, said: “I’m delighted with the popularity of this scheme, which enables communities to identify the highway improvements they would most like to see.
“Our money attracts match funding from town and parish councils and the safety camera partnership, enabling us to invest more than £900,000 across Norfolk.”
There are a number of schemes for West Norfolk and these include £18,000 towards footpaths and surfacing in Terrington St Clement, £15,000 for bus shelters in King’s Lynn and £13,540 for footpaths in Terrington St John.
Just over £3,000 has also been earmarked for speed activated signs at Docking and Wormegay, dependent on contributions being secured from the Safety Camera Partnership, which meets in April.
