Overnight closures on Bridge Road this week

Bridge Road in Exeter will be closed overnight each evening this week.

The closure will be in place from 8:30pm to 5:30am from tonight (Monday 7 August) to, and including, Thursday 10 August. On Friday night, the road will be closed from 10pm until 5am on Saturday morning.

Resurfacing will be carried out on the widened deck of the Countess Wear Flood Relief structure, and on the sections of road that tie in either end of the Swing Bridge.  Safety barriers will also be installed and street lighting columns will be connected. All of the work is weather dependent and may have to be cancelled at short notice.

The diversion route during the closures 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

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

Further updates will be posted on the Bridge Road Widening Scheme website.
