Further disruptions on Braunton Road

The A361 at Braunton has again become partially blocked due to flooding.

The road is now blocked in both directions between Wrafton Road and Chaddiford Lane, following an earlier disruption near the Strand Lane junction at Ashford which has since been cleared.

Devon County Council acknowledged that there is a collapsed section of pipe beneath the part of the road which flooded earlier, which will need to be replaced ‘as soon as their resources allow’.

Resurfacing work was also scheduled to start on the Braunton Road today (Thursday), which should be completed on January 14.
