Main Brixham road to be closed for tree felling
THE main road in and out of Brixham will be closed to traffic from 7am on Sunday for tree felling work.
Following a tree falling at Strawberry Bends last month, council officers have identified a further four large trees on private land that pose a potential hazard to road users and therefore need to be removed.
The trees are particularly big and are close to the highway so will require specialist removal involving a crane to lower the branches.
That means the road will need to be closed to vehicles for most of the day on Sunday.
