A £750,000 scheme to improve the safety of a busy roundabout has been given permission to move onto consultation.
The Norwich highways agency committee has committed to move forward with plans to improve the Earlham Fiveways roundabout, which could see a host of changes made to its layout and surrounding roads.
The scheme, which includes new shared pathways for pedestrians and cyclists, is estimated to cost around £750,000, £685,000 of which is hoped to be secured through Department for Transport funding.
It would also make the central island of the roundabout larger, narrowing the lanes around it in an attempt to slow traffic.
There would also be traffic calming measures added to Gypsy Lane, along with a 20mph limit.
