Devon County Council to remove Tavistock signs

Over 50 road signs are to be taken down in order to reduce clutter in Tavistock.

Devon County Council has announced the move, claiming that the warning signs are repetitive for road users, with 90 per cent of people welcoming the plans, reports the Plymouth Herald.

Speaking to the news provider, councillor Debo Sellis explained that a number of signs in the town are now redundant.

"We want to make the most of the town's World Heritage Site status and this will start with the removal of signs to de-clutter the town centre," Ms Sellis noted.

She went on to say that there were five different signs within 200 metres to indicate a roundabout.

High numbers of road signs can often prove misleading for drivers, meaning that clean-up operations can make a significant difference to safety on the roads.

If drivers are uncertain if they understand specific notices, they should carry out research as soon as possible.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801546816-ADNFCR
