People who say they have been plagued by so-called 'boy racers' congregating at Mousehold Heath at night could get respite from the problem.
Residents of Britannia Road, near the top of Ketts Hill, have long called for action to slow drivers down.
Both Britannia Road and nearby Vincent Road have recently been re-designated as 20mph zones as part of the Push The Pedalway project.
And £20,000 of community infrastructure levy money - a tax on developers who build new homes - will now be used on measures to help ensure the limit is kept to.
Bert Bremner, cabinet member for environment and sustainable development at Norwich City Council, said: 'The package of measures responds to feedback from other stakeholders and includes further traffic calming measures, improve pedestrian facilities and managing on-street parking to reduce the current congestion problems.'
