Village lorry campaigners delighted that the B3172 will be included in Seaton traffic management scheme

HIGHWAYS chiefs have confirmed that a new traffic management plan for Seaton has been extended to include the B3172.

Residents at Axmouth, campaigning to rid their village of heavy lorries, today welcomed the news.

They had asked to be included in the review following a public meeting in the village last week, when members agreed that a traffic management scheme that took in the whole Lower Axe Estuary was needed.

Now County Councillor Stuart Hughes, Cabinet Member for Highways, has written to say they will, indeed, be looking at the B3172 Bosshill to Seaton road as part of the traffic management plan for Seaton.

Axmouth Parish Council chairman Carol Rapley said: “We look forward to working with DCC highways and our neighbours on this project crucial to the future of Axmouth and the Lower Axe Estuary.”
