Poll: Should speed limit be cut to 30mph on Holt Road, near Cromer?
A new push is being made to get a 30mph limit on a busy road - in a bid to pave the way for a mini roundabout at a notorious junction.
At Cromer Town Council on Monday, members heard another plea from residents for more to be done to get a mini roundabout at the junction of the A148 and Felbrigg Road near Cromer.
Diana Meggy from Steps to Safety urged councillors to lobby Norfolk County Council, after hearing that the junction was not considered one of the top priorities for work.
Town, district and county councillor Hilary Thompson said: 'You won't get a mini roundabout anywhere, other than where there is a 30mph limit or lower.
'So we need to push to have the limit reduced from 40mph to 30mph. Anything over 30mph and there has to be a large roundabout, which none of us wants.'

She said the possible expansion of retail outlets on Holt Road in Cromer could improve the case for the limit, but said it was 'not high on the agenda' of the county council.
Members voted to write to the county council to re-state their determination to extend the 30mph limit, and to push for a mini roundabout.
