Tree cutting work closes A35 at Dorset-Devon border
4:12pm Monday 28th October 2013 in News
THE A35 is closed at the Dorset-Devon border so dangerous overhanging trees can be cut back.
The stormy weather led to numerous oak trees hanging over the road in Kilmington, near Axminster.
The Highways Agency has closed the A35 between the A3052 Charmouth Road junction and the A30 junction in Honiton while trees are cut back, as they are hanging in a "precarious" position.
A spokesman for Devon County Council said: "The road was closed by the Highways Agency at 3.40pm while they cut the trees back.
"Sunday night's storm led to several trees hanging over the road in a precarious position, so they closed the road to cut them back so they do not fall onto the road."
The road is expected to be closed or around four hours while the work is carried out.
