- no centre line carriageway markings in the 30mph zone. This decreases the confidence of motorists that they can pass each other and reduces road speeds.
- gateways on some, but not all roads into the village, to make drivers more aware that they are entering a residential area.
- a pedestrian refuge near the bridge in the Square, to improve safety for those waiting to cross the Lewdown to Tavistock road.
However, apart from the removal of the carriageway markings, which would be done when the roads are resurfaced next year, Highways won't pay for the work involved.
Chillaton parish councillors will now be looking at the details of what the Highway Authority is prepared, or not prepared, to approve and trying to refine those ideas to create the maximum benefit for residents. Detailed proposals will then be put forward for your consideration. Once we have a scheme that is the best we could get and would be approved if the money was available, we can seek sponsorship from a variety of sources.
