UPDATE: Planned overnight closure of Shaldon Bridge postponed until later this week
Posted on: 25 February 2019
South West Water has repaired the mains water leak discovered last week during improvement work close to the Shaldon Bridge junction of the A379 Bitton Park Road in Teignmouth.
However, further investigation into the drainage issues has found the problem to be more extensive than first thought.
As a result we have decided to slightly delay the planned improvement work in the Shaldon Bridge junction area so as much of the work as possible can be coordinated, and the bridge won’t need to be closed for as many nights.
This means that the planned overnight closure of Shaldon Bridge and the junction with the A379 Bitton Park Road has been pushed back to later this week.
The bridge will now remain open until at least Thursday night when, depending on how work progresses to fix the drainage issues, a decision will be made about when to reinstate the overnight closure in order to continue the resurfacing and improvement work.
We apologise for the disruption caused and thank you for your continued patience and understanding.
