Motorists are being advised that the road through Dawlish
Strand will be closed for around two weeks from Monday (29 April) as work on
the £1.5million regeneration of the Strand continues.
The road will be closed for reconstruction and
resurfacing, which is expected to be completed by Friday 10 May. As per the
previous road closure in February for water mains diversion, deliveries to the
businesses will be permitted, although drop off points will vary. During the
second week of the closure, there will be some disruption to the car parks at
the western end of The Strand.
They can close it for two weeks and life WILL continue. So why not keep it like that ..is that not what the majority of people voted for be it slim. Its great to walk around Newton Abbot shopping areas and other towns without having to watch out for boy racers.. You dont see a car in Exeter Hight Street or the new shopping centre, I dont know why Dawlish is so obsessed with cars.
Doh!!! because its the main artery of the town, and has as proved the Strand is now dead!! for all the business the shops have done they might as well have closed and took a 2week holiday. Dont bother wondering I know what your response will be
Keep the road open, pedestrianised areas become ghost towns in the evening.
Not looking forward to the traffic queues behind cars struggling to park though!
