The A3124 through Beaford village is closed over the next week and a half while drainage repairs are carried out.

Devon County Council and South West Water are co-ordinating repairs to the highway drainage and sewers within the village to alleviate flooding. The road will be closed until Friday 1 November.

Night time closures will then be in place on the road from 6:30pm to 7am between Thursday 7 November and Thursday 14 November to enable resurfacing on the road.

The diversion route during the closures will be signed via A3124, Dolton Beacon, Winkleigh, A3072, Sampford Courtney, Inwardleigh, A386, Meeth, Merton and vice versa.

Following these repairs, overnight patching work will be carried out on the A3124 Woolleigh Cross to Torches Corner over five nights, starting on the evening of Tuesday 12 November. The road will be closed from 7pm to 7am each night. No work will be carried out over the weekend and the last overnight closure on this section will be from 7pm on Monday 18 November, re-opening at 7am the following morning (Tuesday 19 November).

Resurfacing will be carried out on the section of the A3124 New Bridge to Woolleigh Bridge, Great Torrington. This will be undertaken over six nights, with the road again closed from 7pm-7am, from Tuesday 19 November. No work will be carried out over the weekend, with the final day of the scheme scheduled for the evening of Tuesday 26 November, with a closure from 7pm until 7am the next day (Wednesday 27 November).
