Three weeks of temporary traffic lights planned for main route out of Honiton while ‘essential’ drain repairs are carried out

Temporary traffic lights will be in place for around three weeks when ‘essential’ drainage works are carried out along a main route out of Honiton.

Devon County Council has announced temporary traffic lights will be in place 24-hours a day on the A373, near Hembury Fort, close to Honiton, from Monday, January 10, 2022, until Friday, February 4.

And a four-day road closure has been planned for Buckerell Lane, a side road adjoining the A373 junction at Buckerell Cross.

A Devon County Council spokesman said: “Essential drainage repairs will be carried out along the A373 near Hembury Fort in East Devon from Monday 10 January until Friday 4 February 2022.

“Temporary traffic lights will be in place 24-hours a day throughout the duration of the scheme for the safety of site staff and the travelling public.

“Buckerell Lane, a side road adjacent to the A373 junction at Buckerell Cross, will be closed for four days from Monday 10 January.”

The spokesman added: “To help minimise disruption, the scheme has been programmed for the start of the new year when traffic flows are lighter on this road.”
