09:30hrs. Just spotted Road Closed sign in Ash Lane above The Steep. More once further information available.
13:55hrs update - Road Closed Ahead (and Diversion) signs have been removed from by the Bus Stop and Ash Lane (at bottom of The Steep). Assume road is now clear.
With the huge number of dying or dead ash trees lining the lanes which will need felling I expect this inconvenience will become commonplace. Some warning would be in everyone’s interest.
10:20hrs update - Tree and BT work for around 100 metres just before Withycombe Farm. Road at this point will be closed for possibly 2 days but open after circa 4pm. Access up to this point is fine.
