Long-awaited safety improvements to a busy north Norfolk bridge are expected to start in the next few days.

Steps to Safety campaigners have for years been pressing for a footbridge where the A148 Cromer to Holt road crosses the Bittern Line.

Currently, pedestrians have to walk into the busy road on the edge of Cromer to cross the bridge.

Norfolk County Council is at the moment ruling out the footbridge because of the predicted cost, but on or just after March 4, work on an alternative scheme - a footway - will begin.

The pavement and kerblines on the northern side will be realigned into the road, while a shallow ramp will take pedestrians down to the level of the road surface across the bridge.

The pedestrian path will be have different colour surface, defined by a white line.

The work, taking place between numbers 202 and 216, is part of a £35,250 scheme, predicted to take four weeks, which will include extending the drainage system along the road.

There will be temporary traffic signals in place during the work, and the council has apologised for any inconvenience.

Steps to Safety is also campaigning for the 40mph limit to be lowered to 30mph, and for a roundabout to be put in at the Felbrigg Road junction with the A148.
