What’s happened so far

Elected councillors, highways and public health professionals, the police, and Newton Abbot Town Council have all contributed ideas on the possible design of any future scheme.

These ideas are broadly split into three areas:

Data collection – analysing and understanding how speed and traffic information for Newton Abbot could be used to help design any future scheme and to plan for the collection of new data which can be used to monitor any future scheme’s success.

Communications and engagement – this area of work looks at finding out what the community think about the proposals and if they have any ideas.

Design delivery – possible design elements of a potential scheme; this includes things like gateway features, if signs might be needed, how many and where.

The ideas considered at these groups formed the basis of the recent consultation.
