Almost 70 schemes across Norfolk which aim to slow down traffic and make roads and footpaths safer are to receive a share of more than £200,000.
Norfolk County Council has announced funding for 68 initiatives through its Parish Partnership scheme, with the money due to be used to make small improvements to the county's highways. Parish and town councils will meet half the cost of the projects.
The support includes £150,000 funding from the highway improvement fund, and a £50,000 boost for mobile speed warning signs, provided by Norfolk's Safety Camera Partnership.
David Harrison, cabinet member for environment, transport, development and waste, said: 'The Parish Partnership scheme is popular with local communities because it helps to deliver small improvements that are high priorities locally.'
There were 73 bids. Successful ones were:
