A short stretch of the A39 out of Lynmouth is being resurfaced at the bottom of Countisbury Hill. As a result the road will apparently be closed for two days.
According to Devon County Council Highways the diversion route will add 109km to the journey and take just over two hours.
Admittedly that’s only if you need to go from one side of the roadworks to the other. But it’s still one hell of a diversion.
Wake up DCC! A roads should not be closed unless absolutely necessary!
