the parish council has received this update from Highways England:
A30 Canon’s Town emergency drainage works
Highways England operates, maintains and improves England’s motorways and major A
roads. This letter is to let you know about works at the above location.
Further works are need on the A30 at Canon’s Town to mitigate the ongoing flooding
during periods of heavy rainfall. A larger capacity drainage pipe will be installed from
one side of the A30 to the outfall on the other side. Due to the complexity of routing this
new pipe through existing buried services, the works are expected to take a few days.
To reduce the impact on traffic we will carry out this work over two consecutive
weekends, and before the current national lockdown is lifted.
Please accept our apologies in advance for any inconvenince this may cause, we’ll make
every effort to ensure the impact on the local community and travelling public is kept to
