Fixing a hole in the road

A hole in the road that has been fenced off since last year is to get a temporary fix.
The void at the end of Glen Road in Sidmouth has exposed a drainage culvert and should be covered within weeks.
But Devon County Council Highways boss, Councillor Stuart Hughes, said a permanent repair will have to take its turn in a busy schedule of road maintenance.
That has included tens of thousands of pounds worth of work in the Sid Valley, including on residential roads and footpaths.
Roads such as Tyrell Mead and Lower Wheathills have been treated with a slurry seal and micro asphalt surfacing.
