Last week's road closure
As you will all know, the recent closure of the road to Lifton caused a lot of problems for drivers and has left the lanes from Splatt Mill to the White House in need of some attention.
Normally, diversions would be put in place at Router for traffic from Lifton and Lifton-bound vehicles would be directed to go via Lewdown. Chillaton parish councillors tried on Saturday and on Monday to get that diversion put in place, but could not get the Highway Authority to take action. They have now asked West Devon Borough Council to have the road sweeping vehicle visit those lanes to remove the mud on the road and it may also be necessary to ask Highways to take other action to rectify the damage caused by vehicles trying to pass each other.
