NOTORIOUS traffic lights in Exmouth town centre which have proved a headache for pedestrians and motorists alike for years are being replaced.

The permanent traffic lights linking Chapel Street to the Parade have been removed and replaced with temporary lights. New lights will be installed next week.

The lights were notorious for being several seconds out of sync –with pedestrians often trying to cross the road when they believe it is safe only for vehicles to drive over the crossing.

A Devon County Council spokesman said: “The lights at this junction are being upgraded with modern equipment, in line with national standards. The new replacement lights are due to be installed and operating by the middle of next week.”
