Councillor funds £2,000 for new signs to cut speeding on the A39 through Fairy Cross.

A Devon County councillor has helped install new signs at Fairy Cross to help cut down on speeding.

Councillor Robin Julian donated the money for the ‘please drive carefully’ signs on the A39.

Cllr Julian said: “I’ve seen complaints about speeding traffic for years now and in fact this was an issue addressed by previous councillors.

“Now I have had a chance to do something about it.

“I’ve had these signs installed for £2,000 – paid for out of my locality budget – and they have had a measurable effect, taking average traffic speeds down from 70mph to around 50mph which is much appreciated by locals in the village.”
