Road safety improvements are due to be introduced at Four Elms Hill A3052

near Newton Poppleford later this month.

Devon County Council is due to start work on the evening of Monday 15 November, to install continuous solid double white lines on this section of road in order to prevent overtaking manoeuvres.

The new lining is the latest in a series of measures for Four Elms Hill agreed by the East Devon Highways and Transport Committee (HATOC), following on from the introduction of a 40mph speed limit in 2019.

Councillor Stuart Hughes, Devon County Council Cabinet Member for Highway Management and Chair of the East Devon HATOC Committee, said: “It’s good news that we now have the all clear from the Police and the safety audit to make the changes to the white lines on Four Elms Hill, in accordance with the HATOC decision. The HATOC Committee was keen to see a solid continuous double white system on this section of road to make it absolutely clear to motorists that they cannot overtake on this section of road. As a regular user of the A3052 I think these lines will provide an important improvement to safety on this stretch and I’m sure they’ll be welcomed by the local community.”

Contractors will be finalising details next week ahead of the scheduled start on Monday 15 November. Work is subject to favourable weather conditions, but the scheme will be undertaken during overnight road closures and is expected to take up to three evenings.
