Motorists are being warned of almost a year of disruption on one of the main approaches to Exeter. The next phase of work on £55m improvements to roads around South West Exeter are set to get under way soon – with roadworks lasting until the Summer of 2024.
The improvements around the A379 are all part of plans to support the development of 2,500 new homes and employment land on the edge of the city. But to facilitate the work, lane closures and contraflow traffic management will be in place for the duration of the work which is expected to be completed by summer 2024.
Work at the Devon Hotel roundabout and A379 Trood Lane junction in Exeter is due to start on Monday 18 September 2023 and is expected to be completed by Summer 2024. It will be carried out under lane closures or contraflow systems, alongside a temporary 30mph speed limit.
Night-time road closures of the A379 between the Devon Hotel Roundabout and Ellacott Road will be required between 7pm and 6am from Monday 18 September 2023 through until Friday 29 September 2023, (Monday night to Friday night inclusive only – no weekend working) to carry out critical works within the carriageway.
Lane closures and contraflow traffic management will be in place for the duration of the work which is expected to be completed by summer 2024. Further occasional night-time road closures of the A379, Bad Homburg Way, Dawlish Road and the Devon Hotel Roundabout will be required at times.
Please adjust your journey times accordingly.
