The schedule of drainage repairs on the A3124 at Beaford has been changed following recent poor weather conditions.

Devon County Council has confirmed that night time closures on the road at Beaford village will now be in place on the road from 7pm to 7am between Monday (11 November) and Wednesday 13 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 Monday 18 November to Thursday 21 November. The road will be closed from 7pm to 7am each night. The last overnight closure on this section will be from 7pm on Monday 25 November, re-opening at 7am the following morning (Tuesday 26 November).

Resurfacing will be carried out on the section of the A3124 New Bridge to Woolleigh Bridge, Great Torrington. This will be undertaken over seven nights, with the road again closed from 7pm-7am, from Tuesday 26 November. No work will be carried out over the weekend, with the final day of the scheme scheduled for the evening of Wednesday 4 December, with a closure from 7pm until 7am the next day (Thursday 5 December).

During these closures, the official diversion will be on the A3124 through Beaford until reaching Torrington, onto the A386 through Little Torrington, Merton and Hatherleigh, onto the A3072 through Jacobstowe, the A3124 after Sampford Courtney, then the A3124 through Winkleigh.

Road markings will be reinstated overnight at each site within a week of the resurfacing being completed. This will be carried out during overnight work, subject to weather conditions.
