Bridge Road night-time closures for installation of expansion joints

Bridge Road, Exeter, will close in both directions for up to seven nights for essential work to expansion joints on two of the bridges.

Devon County Council contractors will be installing expansion joints in the road surfaces on the railway bridge and the Countess Wear Flood Relief bridge.

It will involve cutting slots across the full width of the road and filling them with a material that will expand and contract with the roads’ surface temperature.

Other small items of work will be completed in the same closure periods.

The closure schedule is:
Tues 6th Nov 20:30 to 05:30
Weds 7th Nov 20:30 to 05:30
Thurs 8th Nov 20:30 to 05:30
No closure Fri or Sat
Sun 11th Nov 19:00 to 06:00 (note longer closure allowed Sunday night)
Mon 12th Nov 20:30 to 05:30

Weds 14th Nov 20:30 to 05:30

The overnight closures will be removed if the work is completed sooner.
