A39 at Barbrook open for ESSENTIAL travel only

Posted on: 5 March 2018

The A39 at Barbrook is now open – for essential travel only.

The road was closed earlier today after a huge snow drift, which was up to 15ft high on Saturday, began to thaw and collapsed onto the road.

Devon County Council Highways Teams worked on Monday morning to clear the route every snowblower, snow plough and digger at their disposal to restore.

However snow and ice will continue to be a problem on many roads across Exmoor for at least a week, possibly longer – drivers are urged not to use these routes for the time being.
