More diversion signs for Sidmouth
Sidmouth ford closed for ramp repairs
THE saga of road diversions and signs continues - the number growing this week after Sidmouth ford closed.
The Environment Agency has closed it until Friday, March 23, to repair its ramps. Diversion signs have been installed.
Some believe the signs are unnecessary and misleading, but Devon County Councillor, Stuart Hughes, said he had found them to be correct.
Diversions were in place at the ford because it was planned works, he said. When the ford closes through environmental factors, locals expect to find an alternative route.
