Bicton agrees one-way trial

PUBLISHED: 12:30 14 July 2015


New traffic rules could be introduced for events at Bicton Arena in a bid to combat traffic problems.

Representatives from Bicton met with East Budleigh Parish Council to discuss congestion, which is a particular problem in Yettington.

Council chairman David Buss said that, after the meeting, Bicton had agreed to trial a new system, telling people attending its events to arrive and leave by different routes.

Councillor Buss said: “They are going to trial a one-way system.

“When vehicles arrive, and when they leave, if they are on the same bit of road, it can lead to some delays with horseboxes trying to pass each other. Making it a one-way system, we hope, will alleviate some if not all of the problems.”
