A series of measures and proposals are being considered to tackle long-running traffic and parking issues at Instow.The parish council has been working with local Devon County Councillor Rodney Cann to step up efforts to deal with problems such as speeding, parking issues and making the area safer for pedestrians.Within the year it is planned to extend the current 30mph speed limit zone on the B3233 Bideford approach road and it is hoped to install a second "slow down" interactive sign to warn drivers.County funding has already been approved for a large reactive sign on the treacherous A39 junction, to help prevent traffic from the Bideford direction colliding with vehicles crossing the road.It is also hoped to create a new toucan crossing by the old signal box at Instow, where the Tarka Trail crosses the road, as well as "refuge" islands on Anstey Way to improve pedestrian safety.
