Traffic has returned to normal, four weeks ahead of schedule, on Exeter Road, after Wales and West Utilities’ ‘waved goodbye’ to Exmouth.

The engineering company, which has been working on a £175,000 gas pipe investment in the town centre since January, has left the area early after replacing 760 metres of old metal gas pipe with plastic pipes.

Wales and West Utilities programme controller for the area, Jim Lee, said: “We are delighted that we have been able to finish this work four weeks ahead of schedule so homes and businesses on Exeter Road can get back to normal.

“We know our gas pipe upgrade work can be disruptive, and we want to thank everyone who lives, works and travels through this area of Exmouth for bearing with us while we did this essential work.”
