Work is due to start on Monday on tackling a Great Yarmouth kerb that has been labelled as a hazard to the public.
The kerb on the edge of a pavement in Regent Road has regularly seen people tripping over it and on some occasions injuring themselves.
A £,3000 Norfolk County Council scheme will see railings installed along the stretch of pavement edge from opposite the KFC to near Costa Coffee.
The funding was secured by Mick Castle, county councillor for Yarmouth and North, who said: 'The good news is that the safety barriers are finally being installed next week, commencing July 10. I managed to get the finance in place to implement the scheme using my local highways budget.
'John Cotton, our local area engineer, has appraised traders concerning the work which should finally end the blight of unnecessary falls particularly involving the elderly.'
