BICKLEIGH bridge in Mid Devon will be closed at night throughout March to allow for essential repair works.

The section of road from Bickleigh Bridge to Burn Cross will be shut to traffic between the hours of 6.30pm and 6.30am on week nights from Monday, March 4, to Friday, March 22.

South West Highways, which is carrying out the works on behalf of Devon County Council, said it would try to maintain access to affected properties where possible.
