Improvements at Appledore Crossing, Northam

A new zebra crossing is proposed on A386 Appledore just up the hill from Kingsley Avenue as currently there are no crossing facilities in the area. This will provide a formal crossing point between Appledore Primary School and Anchor Park as well as other amenities in the area. The proposal also includes a new bus shelter at the bus stop, and widening of the existing footpath. However, to ensure good visibility at the crossing, 5 parking spaces on its approach will have to be removed.

The crossing will encourage people, particularly those traveling to the school, to make their journey on foot, reducing local journeys by car and benefiting their health and wellbeing.

Funding has been secured from the 4th round of the Active Travel Fund as well as from Section 106 contributions towards a crossing in this location from the Baker Estate development. Devon County Council aim to complete the final design after the public consultation and build the scheme in Spring 2024 (subject to the public consultation results and Cabinet approval).
