Traffic chaos as main roads closed and light failure causes delays

Two main roads in Devon have been closed – with a traffic lights failure causing delays elsewhere in the county.

Roads and traffic monitoring service Inrix reports that the A361 at Braunton will be closed in both directions, for ten days, due to resurfacing work.

The road – the main route between Braunton and Ilfracombe – is shut between Braunton Fire Station and the Petrol Station at Knowle. Delays are being reported on Chaloners Road as traffic diverts.

Meanwhile, in East Devon, at 12:34pm, Devon County Council has said the River Sid crossing on Salcombe Rd nr Millford Rd Sidmouth closed for approximately one hour to allow the Environment Agency to remove a tree from the river.

Down in South Devon, very slow traffic is reported on the A379 at Ermington due to a traffic light failure on Church Street.

“There are reports of temporary traffic lights not working causing delays between Modbury and Yealmpton,” reports Inrix.
