Road to Brixham Will Close on Sunday

THE main road in and out of Brixham will be closed to traffic from 7am on Sunday for tree felling work.

Following a tree falling at Strawberry Bends last month, council officers have identified a further four large trees on private land that pose a potential hazard to road users and therefore need to be removed.

The trees are particularly big and are close to the highway so will require specialist removal involving a crane to lower the branches.

That means the road will need to be closed to vehicles for most of the day on Sunday.It is expected that the work will carry on until late afternoon, with Brixham-bound traffic being diverted over Kennels Road and Milton Street.

Paignton-bound traffic will be diverted along Churston Way, Copythorne Road and Bascombe Road.

Bus services in and out of Brixham will be severely affected, and people wishing to find out more should contact the bus companies for timetable updates.

As soon As I find out which way ant buses, if any, will be going I will let you all know.
