Cyclist could soon be allowed to use a section of footpath close to a Norfolk town's rail station.
Norfolk County Council has proposed to convert part of a pathway in Station Road, Wymondham, into a shared use facility.
The change would allow cyclists to use it, along with pedestrians.
The plan would also see the existing zebra crossing on the road converted into a puffin crossing, meaning traffic lights would be installed.
At a meeting of Wymondham Town Council's planning committee on Tuesday evening, which lasted for three minutes, no objections to the proposal were made.

Robert Savage speculated it would form part of a future cycle network from south Wymondham through to the town centre.
"That's what I assume as well," chairman Peter Broome added.
