Road Closure - 28th May - Vets to Forde Close

The road between South Devon Veterinary Hospital and Forde Close is going to be closed on the 28th May for a maximum of 5 days.  The expectation is the road will re-open on the 30th May unless there are complications. There will be access to land and premises in this time.  The suggested route to avoid this closure is to use Court Grange Lane, or to reach the areas around the Cider Works use the main route into the village from Totnes Rd. The road is closed to renew a communication pipe, if you would like any additional information, please do contact KIER MG LTD, Telephone 0844 346 2020
