Work starts on Kingskerswell bypass

Demolition work has started to make way for the Kingskerswell bypass in South Devon.

Local people have campaigned for a bypass for more than 50 years.

The Department for Transport (DfT) is paying £76m towards the cost of the road, while Devon County Council and Torbay Council will contribute £33m and Teignbridge District Council a further £500,000.

The new road will take three years to build, but when it is finished residents hope the scheme will ease peak time traffic jams.
