*22 Devon Local Transport Plan - Scheme for Formal Approval
Toucan crossings, Balls Corner, Newton Abbot
The Committee considered the report of the Local Service Officer (Newton Abbot) (ED/03/82/LSO).
The Chairman reported receiving an expression of concern from Mr RA Smerdon, Divisional Officer, Devon Fire and Rescue Service, about the installation of the crossings which, in their view, would "increase traffic 'back-up' and therefore delay the fire fighters in getting to the Station". The Chairman read out the letter and Members discussed the need to make a balanced judgement with the everyday risk to pedestrians if the scheme did not go ahead set against the occasional risk of possible delay to a fire service call out during peak traffic flows.
RESOLVED that the scheme as indicated on drawing no. 6288NA/1 for the provision of two Toucan crossings at the Balls Corner junction, Newton Abbot, be approved at an estimated cost of 60,000.
