Teignmouth traffic management finally underway!

Posted on Jan 24, 2017

Have you heard about the Teignmouth traffic management plan? It appears that exciting developments are about to take place in just a few days in the Teignmouth area. These changes are set to revolutionise the current parking systems available in Teignmouth. Some of these modifications include an increase in free parking periods, new residents’ parking zones and cheaper on-street parking. All these changes are expected to prove invaluable to residents, visitors and shoppers.

So when exactly will these changes take place? In just a few days’ time, on the 16th of January this year, this Teignmouth traffic management plan will be put into motion. These changes have been on the cards for five years, with the Mayor of Teignmouth Councillor Terry Falcao, campaigning for them to take effect. Luckily, it appears they’ve finally become a reality. It’s anticipated that these parking changes will not only prove beneficial to residents, but provide a safer system for schools and around parking at junctions.

So what are some of the key changes?

Residents will be pleased to discover that residents’ parking zones will be introduced into a large number of locations including: Exeter Street, Bitton Park Road, Grove Avenue, Winterbourne Road and Higher Brimley Road. For a more extensive list of the streets that will be receiving residents’ parking zones as a result of the Teignmouth traffic management plan, see here.

Bare in mind that Upper Den Promenade is scheduled to be closed from May 1 until September 10 this year. Its reopening will bring some beneficial changes. Visitors will be more than pleased to find out that a new pay and display system will be installed, which will provide longer free period parking as well as cheaper on-street parking. All in all, the Teignmouth traffic management plan looks like it will prove to be a great new instalment for residents and visitors alike.
