South Hams's motorists will have a road closure to avoid nearby on the National Highways network this week.

But the news isn't too bad, as it is only expected to cause slight delays, of under 10 minutes.

The latest expected works list, with notes from National Highways, shows that one closure is due to start over the next two weeks:

A38, from 8pm August 9 to 5am August 10, slight delays (under 10 minutes): A38 westbound, Ashburton to Dartbridge lane closure for electrical work.

National Highways is responsible for maintaining motorways and major A-roads, so closures of smaller roads will not be included in their schedule.
