Residents may have noticed that there is currently a closure / diversion order in place for part of the Kingsteignton Footpath 1 near the Passage House Inn.
This is to allow Devon County Council to carry out maintenance works and improve the path surface to provide an enhanced link from Hackney Marshes Local Nature Reserve to the Passage House Inn. In the interest of using recycled materials, the surfacing works will be utilising recycled road planings from the A380 resurfacing works that are currently taking place.
The path has been closed in the interests of public safety during the works, with an alternative signed route for pedestrians. The closure is the subject of a 6 month order from 15th February 2018, although the planned works are expected to be completed by this Easter.
The landowner has agreed to permit cycles to use this footpath so effectively this will become one of the first sections of the Teign Estuary Trail to be completed.
