Bridge Road overnight closures reminder

Overnight closures will recommence on Bridge Road this evening (Tuesday 18 July).

Road users are being reminded that the road will be closed from 8:30pm tonight until 5:30am tomorrow morning (Wednesday 19 July) for resurfacing work to take place.

Bridge Road will also be closed over the same hours overnight on Wednesday (19 July) and Thursday (20 July) and also from 10pm on Friday (21 July) to 5am Saturday morning.

The current road surface will be removed between the area near the side roads of Glasshouse Lane and Countess Wear Road, down to the south end of Countess Wear Bridge, tonight and tomorrow night. This will leave a rough temporary surface with ramps and no road markings during the daytime. Motorists are asked to reduce their speed and take extra care.

The road will be resurfaced on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday night.

During the closures, 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

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.

There will also be night-time closures from 8:30pm to 5:30am from Monday 24 July to, and including, Thursday 27 July.

The work is weather dependent and may have to be cancelled at short notice.

Further updates will be posted on the Bridge Road Widening Scheme website where you can sign up for alerts.
