I think there must be a surplus of temporary traffic lights in Devon and they've run our of storage so they just keep installing them around Teignmouth and Dawlish as somewhere to put them.  I hope they manage to phase them so that they take into account the volume of traffic towards or from Exeter at different times of day. The last lot caused huge queues in one direction most mornings but only a few cars waiting the other way. If they can get it right then the traffic should still flow reasonably well (fingers crossed anyway).

I read somewhere that they are going to lower the wall at Lanherne to make it all one height. Possibly that's what its for in relation to the cycle path.

On reading DJ post 15 April 18:47.  Yesterday evening i was driving to Cockwood it was 5:45pm. I was waiting at the traffic lights at the Warren road and there were about 6 cars in line at these lights. Felt sorry for those coming into Dawlish as the line of cars was all the way back to the roundabout at Sainsbury's. Surley they can't be that idiotic !! but then again perhaps they are. Just needs someone to change the settings.

They truly are that idiotic.  Huge queues towards Exeter this morning and huge queues from Exeter this evening.  It's been like this all week.  No-one seems to have any sense when it comes to simple things like this.
