Overnight closures required for safety barrier replacement

A series of overnight closures will start on Bridge Road next week to allow essential safety barrier replacement work to take place.

The road will be closed in both directions from 7pm, reopening no later than 7am the following morning from Tuesday 27 to Friday 30 August, Monday 9 to Friday 13 September and on Wednesday 18 and Thursday 19 September.

Other general maintenance work has also been coordinated to be carried out during the closures to avoid further disruption.

During the closure the recommended diversion route using roads of equal category will be signed via Topsham Road, Alphington Road, Marsh Barton and the A379.

Details of changes to Stagecoach bus services will be available at on the Stagecoach website.

Access for pedestrians and cyclists will be available, but they are advised to use the footway/cycleway to take care to avoid construction vehicles.

Where the only access to residences and businesses is through the road closure vehicles will be allowed access although they may be asked to wait a short time until it is safe to pass. Access will always be maintained for emergency vehicles.
