Work will start on the installation of a Toucan crossing on the A376 on the edge of Exmouth on Tuesday 7 May.

The crossing will be located between Rivermead Avenue and Courtlands Cross and will connect to the Exe Estuary Trail via the National Trust’s Lower Halsdon Farm public path.

As part of the scheme, which is expected to take four weeks to complete, minor footpath widening will also be carried out on the eastern side of Exeter Road.

The scheme will provide a safer crossing of the A376 for pedestrians and cyclists and will improve sustainable transport links across the town.

Temporary traffic lights will be in place while work is carried out between 9:30am and 3:30pm, and where needed, from 6:30pm to 11pm.

Work will be carried out by contractor MacPlant Ltd.
