Tiverton Post Office Shuts Due To Flooding
The recent storms and subsequent rain has led to significant flooding inside the Mid Devon District Council owned premises at Market Walk, Tiverton, due to a collapsed drain.
The flood has entered the Post Office via the toilet facilities and this in turn has damaged the electrical systems.
Reports from our specialist contractor and South West Water have led to the requirement for a full CCTV survey on the drains in that area on Monday 7th March followed by remedial drain works on Friday 11th March.
In conjunction with this work, an electrical survey will be completed early next week to ensure the premises are safe to open again. Whilst these activities are ongoing the Post Office will need to remain closed.
Andrew Jarrett, Deputy Chief Executive, said:
“Due to last week’s significant storm events, damage has been caused to the underground drainage pipes at Market Walk shopping precinct in Tiverton which requires immediate remedial action. Unfortunately, this has resulted in the temporary closure of the Post Office whilst these essential repair works are carried out. We apologise for any inconvenience caused."
