Alternative Route

Alternative Route

An alternative route to that of the Slapton coast road has been agreed between the local community and the Slapton Line Partnership (SLP). Local people led the final decision on the alternative routes, in particular the parish councils working together as the Coleridge Association. The route is being signposted immediately with circle symbols for travellers heading north and diamonds for those heading south. When the next road closure occurs, Devon County Council’s Highways Department will activate hinged signs at Dartmouth, Kingsbridge, Churchstow and Halwell to notify travellers of the road closure. This emergency signage will encourage drivers to use the A381 and A3122 in order to avoid congestion on the alternative routes. The alternative routes run north (circles) from Stokenham to Strete bi-passing Sherford and south (diamonds) from Strete to Stokenham via Slapton. Over coming years the SLP will create additional passing places at locations recommended by the Coleridge Association. Click to download map
