Double closure could bring traffic jam misery from next week

Ilfracombe commuters could be facing delays from next week with the two of the three routes to Barnstaple closed for roadworks.

The B3230 Muddiford road is closed from today (Monday) for 11 days by the Muddiford Inn.

From next Monday the ‘middle road’ via Prixford will also be closed for five days.

It means anyone from Ilfracombe travelling to Barnstaple will have to use the Braunton route and take their chances with the likely traffic jams.

The Gazette has asked Devon County Council for a comment.
