£750,000 Spent On Road Resurfacing

A three-month programme of road resurfacing works in Torbay gets underway in September. 

Roads in Torquay, Paignton and Brixham will be resurfaced between 10 September and 13 December. 

Torbay Council's Executive Lead for Transport, Cllr Robert Excell, said: "This important work costing about £750,000 forms part of our continuing investment in the Bay's highway network. 

"Regrettably work of this nature does require some road closures and diversions, which will be clearly signed. 

"Local people will be given advance notice, and access to properties will be maintained as much as possible."
