Each year local councils are invited to submit bids for highway improvement schemes. For 2017/18 the fund is £300,000 with Norfolk County Council funding 50% of the cost of successful bids. With a very welcome additional £86,000 contribution from Safety Camera Partnership (Norfolk and Suffolk Constabularies) towards road speed activated signs. Town and parish councils contribute the balance.
