CONSULTATION ON POSITIONING OF THE ZEBRA CROSSING and NEW ROAD LAYOUT on the A381 at HARBERTONFORD
In 2003 a zebra crossing was installed across the A381 in Harbertonford, outside the Maltsters Arms. Over the years the Parish Council has been in contact with Devon County Council asking for more to be done to reduce road speeds through the village, and help to make crossing the road safer, particularly as there have been several accidents and near misses on the crossing itself since its installation.
Engineers working on behalf of Devon County Highways were asked to look at the zebra crossing and provide a revised zebra crossing layout that could somewhat alleviate the concerns with the existing crossing. It is not Devon County Council’s intention to move the zebra crossing as proposed without the support of the local community and to ensure it will not spend money on a project that will still be considered unacceptable.
The Parish Council has therefore published the drawings with the proposed new layout and are asking residents to give their views via a questionnaire, by writing to the Clerk or attending the next meeting of the Parish Council in June.
