The Community Liaison Group was established in the first year that construction of the South Devon Link Road project began.
The group, made up from residents and business people, attends meetings with Galliford Try and their clients Devon County Council and Torbay Council and recently were given the opportunity to have a close-up view of how the scheme was progressing out on site.
Ten members were able to attend and were taken on a guided tour of the project. For many this was their first chance to see the path the road will take from Newton Abbot to Hamelin Way, Torquay, much of it presently hidden from public view.
After the visit group member Pam Hampson from Kingskerswell said: ‘It was very interesting to be able to travel the whole route and see how each area fits together. I think we all found it useful as an aid for understanding the whole scheme.’
