Weekend closure of Bridge Road 27-30 January

Bridge Road in Exeter will be closed from 10pm on Friday 27 January until 5am on Monday 30 January for ongoing widening improvements.

The closure is needed to enable a bridge to be lifted into place over the mainline railway in the early hours of Sunday morning. The bridge lift is weather-dependent and may be subject to cancellation in the event of high winds.

The bridge is one of the project’s key pieces of new infrastructure for walkers and cyclists, which will create more space for motorists on the carriageway.

The diversion route will be signed via Topsham Road, Alphington Road, Marsh Barton and the A379. Details of the diversion route are available here.

Details of changes to Stagecoach bus services will be available at https://www.stagecoachbus.com/regional-service-updates/south-west/greater-exeter

Information on diverted bus services is also available here.

Pedestrians and cyclists will be able to access Bridge Road during the closure via temporary paths. They are advised to take care and follow the site signage and any instructions from site staff.
