Essential resurfacing work will be carried out in the centre of Bradninch from the end of February.

A number of roads will be closed throughout the scheme, which is expected to take around five weeks.

From Monday 25 February until Friday 15 March, preparatory work will get underway in Millway and then followed by Fore Street.

The main work in the scheme will be carried out from Monday 18 March, again starting in Millway, and then moving on to High Street, Fore Street, and then part of Cullompton Hill.

The roads will undergo separate closures during weekdays, from 9:30am until 5pm, over a couple of days each when they are being worked on, although some overnight closures may be needed.

Councillor Stuart Hughes

Councillor Stuart Hughes, Devon County Council Cabinet Member for Highway Management, said: “In order to protect the safety of the public and site staff, the roads will have to be closed during the daytime when work is being carried out, but every effort will be made to keep disruption to a minimum.”

Councillor John Berry

Councillor John Berry, Devon County Councillor for Cullompton and Bradninch, said: “I am delighted this work is at last being carried out. It is essential as all of these roads are deteriorating, and in places subsiding. I really understand, and sympathise with, the frustration that any inconvenience may cause, but I ask for forbearance, and hope when it is completed everyone will be pleased with the end result.”

While the roads are closed a diversion route will be signed via Cullompton, B3181, Hele, West End and vice versa. Pedestrian access will be maintained at all times
