Experimental Traffic Regulation Order in Powderham
Posted on: 25 March 2019
New road restrictions are to be introduced in Powderham from next month (April).
Devon County Council is introducing the changes in a bid to reduce the volume and speed of traffic on Estuary and Church Roads, through Powderham village.
The Experimental Traffic Regulation Order (ETRO) will prohibit all motor vehicles, except for access, and will apply for the full length of the route between A379 junctions at Red Lodge in the north and Starcross in the south.
It follows discussions with Powderham Parish Council, Powderham Estate and local residents, and approval from the Teignbridge Highways and Traffic Orders Committee.
The Order is scheduled to be made during the last week of March and will be enforceable from Friday 5 April.
Traffic surveys have been set up by the County Council to monitor the situation.
Unless there are major issues, early on in the trial, the intention is that the trial will run for 12 months to enable repeat traffic monitoring to take place and help to assess and inform the impact of the ETRO on traffic movements.
Formal comments can be made over a period of six months before any decision is taken to either make the ETRO permanent, remove it or modify it.
