A35 reopened at Dorset - Devon border
4:18pm Monday 28th October 2013 in Lyme Regis
THE A35 was closed in both directions between the Dorset border and the A30 junction in Honiton yesterday because of overhanging trees.
The weekend's stormy weather led to numerous oak trees hanging over the road in Kilmington, near Axminster.
The Highways agency closed the road from the A3052 Charmouth Road junction to the A30 junction in Honiton while it cuts the trees back, as the trees were hanging in a "precarious" position.
A spokesperson for Devon County Council said: "The road was closed by the Highways Agency at 15:40pm while they cut the trees back.
"Last night's storm lead to several trees hanging over the road in a precarious position, so they have closed the road to cut them back so they do not fall onto the road."
The road reopened just before 7pm.
