As Highways Authority, Devon County Council has responsibility for double yellow lines in Exeter.
Getting double yellow lines is an expensive legal process – they need to have a Traffic Regulation Order [TRO] drawn up and sealed for the lines can be painted. The TROs need to be advertised and local residents consulted. Costs may vary but could be around £1000 for an advert plus marking of £500, subject to area and length.
For this reason many double yellow lines are advertised in one single TRO.
I know that that I received comments about difficulties caused by the P bus terminus at Crossmeads I and talking to other councillors across West Exe, I have made the following suggestions to DCC:
1) Barley Lane opp the bus stop outside Sylvan Heights (maybe also around the speed cushions) – to deal with safety problems highlighted by a local resident.
2) The bend on Cowick Lane – currently the subject of e-mails to Cllr Heather Morris and myself
3) Some of the junctions iin and around Coverdale Avenues – again to address safety issues raised by local residents.
4) Fernadale Road/Chieftain Way junction
In addition, I feel there may be a need to look at traffic exiting Larch Road into Church Path Road. The lower part of Church Path Road is one-way, but traffic is allowed to turn left out of Larch Road.
There is perceived safety issue here and I would like to propose that Church Path Road is made one-way along its complete length [similar to all the other roads in this stretch off Cowick Lane] and there is a no left turn out of Larch Road.
Together these concerns affect Cowick, Alphington and St Thomas.
