Reconstruction work planned during next Bridge Road weekend closure

Major road reconstruction will be carried out during a weekend closure of Bridge Road in Exeter next month.

The road will be closed from 10pm on Friday 3 March until 5am on Monday 6 March, to enable the area south of the canal bridges to be resurfaced. The existing carriageway, which is suffering structural failure, will be dug up and entirely re-laid, along with the widened section on the west side which will form part of the final four-lane layout.

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

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.
