Because Pimlico is closed (see SX9164 : Pimlico closed, Torquay), HGVs and buses can use this lower section of Torquay's main shopping street, which is pedestrianised. The notice "Caution walking pedestrians" is tautological, but the message needs to be hammered home; I was a passenger on a bus a couple of days later, and two girls very nearly went under its wheels.
