Slapton Line closed until Monday

The road at Slapton Line has been closed due to predicted high tides over the weekend and large amounts of sand and shingle being dumped by the weather.

South Hams District Councillor Julian Brazil said: "The line is closed due to flying sand and stones and will probably remain so until Monday. The sweeper is down there at the moment."

Cllr Brazil said that there had currently been no damage to the line, but Sunday morning is a "big worry" due to big tides and strong winds. 

It is unlikely that the line will be replaced again if it washes away or sustains serious damage, leaving Torcross cut off from Dartmouth, Slapton and Strete, and putting the Slapton Ley nature reserve in peril.

South Hams District Council said: "Due to high winds and predicted high tides over the weekend, the road at Slapton Line has been closed. The winds have already blown sand and debris onto the road, which is currently being cleared, while Beesands Car Park is currently covered by a large amount of shingle due to the stormy weather."
