Villages are joining with Cromer to put pressure on Norfolk County Council to boost safety on a busy stretch of road.
At a recent meeting, representatives from Cromer Town Council and Felbrigg, Runton and Aylmerton gathered with campaign group Steps to Safety over safety on Holt Road from the edge of the town.
And they agreed unanimously to write to the county council with three demands:
■ A 30mph zone along the A148 from Cromer and past the Felbrigg junction, plus the same limit on the Felbrigg to Roughton Road beyond the entrance to Felbrigg Hall.
■ Further County Hall investigations into traffic flow measures at the Felbrigg junction.
■ For the county council to continue to seek funding for a footbridge where the A148 crosses the Sheringham to Norwich rail line and to give the councils and Steps to Safety six-monthly updates on how high is on the list of priorities.
Steps to Safety has mounted a long campaign to convince the county council to construct the footbridge, and has joined forces with local councils to press for a mini roundabout where the A148 meets the Felbrigg road.
At the meeting, held at North Lodge at Cromer, John Meggy from the campaign group said officers should be “challenged” over the safety of the road.
