Resurfacing work starts on Kings Ash Road


Resurfacing work has started on Kings Ash Road in Paignton today, Monday 20th January.

Work on the hill section of the road will take around five days.

The resurfacing will be carried out by Cormac Contracting on behalf of Torbay Council costing around £200,000.

The road will be closed from Luscombe Road to Whitebeam Close. Traffic will be diverted Paignton bound to use Marldon Road down to the main Torquay Road; Hyde Road, Totnes Road to Tweenaway Lights and also vice versa Torquay bound.

Residents have been informed in writing and pre-warning signs will be placed around the area.

Councillor Mike Morey, Cabinet Member for Infastructure, Environment and Culture for Torbay Council, said: “As part of our continuous commitment to structural maintenance across the Bay, these works are necessary and need to be carried out. We are aware these works will be disruptive, so we ask anyone who needs to use this area during this time to look at taking a different route. Local schools and businesses are being notified and we will work with our contractor to minimise the disruption as much as possible.”
