Could Sidford cope with a new industrial site? A 75 minute traffic gridlock says not!

The idea of an industrial complex in Sidford has not died – it could return at any minute.  This was the situation when two large vehicles met on one of the narrowest parts of the road  – vehicles were trapped for more than an hour … imagine if there had been a medical emergency or fire during that time …

Sidmouth DCC councillor Stuart Hughes has responsibility for transport issues in Devon.

A picture is worth a thousand words …

  1. It should be noted that in the first, second and fourth photographs the coach is clearly seen to be on the pavement. And yet these vehicles still cannot get past one another.

    Adding more HGVs to the traffic mix (to get to an industrial site) can only cause more instances of this, and a greater volume of traffic will mean that the queues are longer.
