Possible disruption on A361 on 19th December

Motorists using major roads in North Devon and the M5 on Thursday 19 December have been warned the transportation of two mobile homes is likely to cause some disruption.
Police will be providing a full escort when the loads are moved from Taunton Deane Services to Mullacott Park near Ilfracombe.
The convoy is due to leave at 8am and will travel southbound on the M5 to junction 27, before heading along the A361 North Devon Link Road to Barnstaple.
It will then travel along the A39 towards Bideford, over the new bridge, and back onto the A36, via Braunton, to its destination.  
It is estimated the journey will take around two hours, depending on traffic.
A Devon and Cornwall Police spokesperson said: “This is likely to cause some disruption, especially on single-lane sections of road as the loads will be taking up both carriageways.  
“They will have a full police escort and we ask members of public to be patient if they come across them.”
