Beware danger wall

Many local residents would have been aware of a danger to drivers in Atlantic Way, Westward Ho!, because of a sticking out wall.

The danger is mainly to vehicles travelling from the Bideford direction into Westward Ho!

The danger was caused due to developments taking place adjacent to the narrow stretch of road, where a telegraph pole and street light were left in a dangerous position.

After much nagging at Devon County Council highways department we managed to get these removed.

Unfortunately this has left a further danger caused by an existing, long established wall which sticks out about a metre.


You may also want to watch:


It has no markings and in these dark days and nights it can easily be missed, with the obvious dangers to drivers and passengers.

I therefore urge drivers to be aware of this and ensure that they steer clear until the situation can be resolved.

Devon Highways are aware and I hope that they will be able to sort this dangerous road condition as soon as possible.
