THE clear-up from the weekend’s floods is likely to take several days.

Heavy downpours left several roads across the county either impassable or closed on Sunday, September 17.

Roads that were impacted included the A380 Kingskerswell/ Penn Inn, Honiton Road in Exeter, A379 Kenton, Rydon Lane in Exeter, The Strand in Dawlish, A376 Clyst St Mary to Clyst St George, Station Road in Willand.

Additional staff from our highways teams were drafted in to help respond to a number of incidents across the county as the Network Operations Control Centre received around 150 calls throughout the day.

Eight tonnes of mud were removed from the A381 at Halwell by our teams and fire crews. Fallen trees which had blocked the Teign Valley Road were removed.

There were also reports of flooded properties in a number of communities including Dartmouth, Exeter, Kenton and Topsham. Officers from Devon County Council’s (DCC) Flood Risk Management team will be visiting the worst affected areas to carry out reconnaissance.

As part of the flood recovery operation, DCC are working with local authority partners and the Environment Agency to produce a Flood Investigation Report in order to establish the scale of the damage caused by the event.
