Totnes Town Council
5 November 2012
Issue was raised during TotM consultation day on the 28 April
“We urgently need changes to be made to the Bridge… a wider footpath for pushchairs”
“I walk in almost daily from Bridgetown across the Bridge with my daughter Emily in a sling. I find threading my way past others means stepping off the narrow pavement into the fast traffic from behind. There’s no protection and I feel very vulnerable, particularly for my baby. I dread the time when Emily is walking, with cars roaring past inches from her.”
Natalie Waldbaum, Bridgetown resident
Count undertaken on Wednesday 4 July 2012
7am to 7pm
So over 75% of pedestrians use southern footway
Southern (downstream) footway widened
Northern (upstream) footway unaltered
These future proposals will only be considered once they have been properly drawn up and after further consultation has taken place.
