Essential road maintenance between Branscombe Cross and Seaton Down Hill

Posted on:

Adverse weather conditions this week have delayed work scheduled to start next week on sections of the A3052 between Branscombe Cross and Seaton Down Hill, East Devon.

Instead, the essential resurfacing and drainage work will run from Tuesday 24 January to Monday 6 February.

Road closures will be in place weekdays from 7pm until 7am. The road will remain open on Saturday 28 January and Sunday 29 January, and on Saturday 4 February and Sunday 5 February.

A diversion will be in place for the duration of the work. You can view the proposed diversion route by visiting one network.

More information about the work is available on the council’s traffic information webpages.

Councillor Stuart Hughes, cabinet member for Highways Management said:

“We’re managing to fit a lot of essential maintenance work, including signage and drainage works, into 10 overnight closures. Completing it all at the same time will minimise disruption and inconvenience to the travelling public.

“We have to sign diversion routes using equivalent category roads, and in this case that can accommodate heavy goods vehicles that use this major route.  Drivers of smaller vehicles may find alternative shorter routes to their destination.”
