The A379 in Devon

The A379 runs for 70 miles, linking Devonís two principal cities, Exeter and Plymouth, following an indirect and largely coastal route. The A38 provides a faster and more direct inland route between Exeter and Plymouth, whilst the A380 provides a similarly faster route between Exeter and the Torbay area. However the A379 is significant because it serves a large number of smaller coastal communities and ports along the coast (eg Starcross, Dawlish, Teignmouth, Torquay, Paignton, Dartmouth). Apart from short stretches of dual carriageway at either end and in Torquay, the A379 is a single carriageway road, and is often narrow and twisting.
