Devon and Cornwall Police are warning drivers about icy roads across Devon in particular. There have been a number of reports of minor collisions and the A377 at Crediton is closed just north of Lapford Cross due to the ice.
Work on the Crediton link road gets underway today. It will see a new 760 meter single carriageway giving a direct route to the Lords Meadow Industrial Estate from the Wellparks roundabout on the A377.
The new carriageway is aiming to tackle congestion and improve air quality in the town. The new link will also include a shared cycleway and footpath. Work should be finished by winter next year.
The Department for Transport is to provide extra funding to widen the Crediton Link Road in Devon.
The County Council has been given nearly £3,000 towards the scheme which should start in July.
In total the scheme will cost more than £10,000 and be finished in November 2014.
The money will also be spent on a cycle and footway between A377 and the Lords Meadow Industrial Estate.
Some First Great Western rail services are continuing to be affected by the recent floods.
The Tarka Line between Crediton and Barnstaple is closed with bus replacements operating while work continues to check the bridges along the route.
But the line between Topsham and Exmouth and the Liskeard to Looe railway lines have both reopened after being closed due to flooding.
