Maintaining our rural roads

Farming and the highwayFarming activities can have a significant effect on our rural roads and Norfolk County Council is keen to work with the farming community to help ensure our roads are safe for all users.

The web pages at www.norfolk.gov.uk/farmingandthehighway outline how we can work together to help improve road safety and the roadside environment.

They include information on:

  • Cleaning of mud and spoil
  • Moving livestock
  • Maintaining ditches, drains and hedges
  • Fire and straw burning
  • Agricultural vehicles on the road
  • Use of agricultural road signs

We have annual contracts with local farmers in allocated areas to help with snow clearance so please contact us if you would like to help (particularly in the west of the county) by emailing NorfolkHighways.WinterServices@norfolk.gov.uk
