Rural Traffic Speeds

Broadhembury Parish Council is concerned about traffic speeds on our country roads and through the villages of our parish.

The National speed limit is 60mph and this applies to all rural single carriageway roads unless otherwise sign-posted. Walkers, horse-riders and cyclists frequently tell us that vehicles pass them at speeds which they believe to be excessive and dangerous.

Broadhembury Parish Council would like to know the extent of the problem. We would like to hear from you. Please tell us if you are concerned or have been affected by the speed of passing vehicles. We cannot act without knowing the extent of the problem.

Please write by email to the Clerk at or leave a comment on our web site at or speak to any Parish Councillor.

Advanced Warning of Roadwords on A373

We have been given notification of works due on the A373 during September:

For information only

Resurfacing and Drainage work on the A373 (Cullompton to Honiton)

Resurfacing and drainage work is being carried out along the A373 at 3 locations during September. We will be coordinating work at these 3 locations to help reduce cost and minimise disruption.

The locations are:

Section 1: Drainage repairs on A373 at Sheldon Junction, Dulford. Starting on the 2nd September for 3 weeks. Temporary traffic lights will operate for the duration of this work.
Section 2: Resurfacing A373 at Awliscombe. Road closure for 3 nights on 12th, 13th and 16th of September.
Section 3: Resurfacing A373 at Hembury Fort. Road closure for 3 nights on 17th, 18th and 19th September.

Road Closure

Temporary overnight road closures will need to be in place while we resurface the road. Closures will be in place from 7.00pm – 7.00am

During the road closures a signed diversion route will be in place. The diversion route will be via A373, B3181, Cumberland Way, A30, A373 and vice versa.

This work is weather dependant, so dates may change. Advanced signs will be set up on the A373 to advise drivers of closure dates.

Kind Regards
