A number of roads in North Devon remain closed or blocked due to flooding today.
Devon County Council has released a full list of the roads affected by the recent wet weather.
The following roads remain affected in North Devon:
- A377 Bishop’s Tawton is closed due to flooding. A landslip on Network Rail land at Copplestone may have affected the highway.
- Flooding issues remain on the A377 at Umberleigh
- There are temporary lights in operation on the A379 due to a wall collapse at Fir Tree Garage, Averton Gifford
- The B3236 at Atlantic Village is closed after a garden has collapsed onto the road
- There has been a landslip at Puttsborough near Croyde
- Station Road in Torrington remains blocked due to a landslip
- Taddiport Bridge on the B3227 in Little Torrington remains closed and needs to be inspected on Monday
- Newton Bridge on the A399 remains closed
- Oakford Bridge on the A396 near Bampton will be closed tonight
- Mucksworthy Bridge near Brayford is closed
A number of bridges in Braunton will also need inspecting once the flooding has subsided before they can be reopened.
Highways gangs have been dealing with a number of landslips, mostly on smaller roads around the county.
Devon County Council is asking the public to remain vigilant and careful on the county’s roads.
Motorists are advised not to drive through floodwater or fords with heightened flows because they could put their lives in danger, or the lives of others who may have to rescue them. Also, the wash created by driving through floodwater can cause further problems for nearby properties.
Drivers should also be aware that problems on minor roads may not have been brought to the attention of the County Council’s Highways teams or the emergency services straight away, so are advised to travel carefully.
