Sweetbrier Lane/Whipton Lane Roundabout Pedestrian Enhancements

Devon County Council will shortly be delivering improvements to the Sweetbrier Lane/Whipton Lane Roundabout, near Quick Print. As shown in the Scheme Plan, the improvements comprise the construction of raised crossings on two arms of the roundabout. The improvements were consulted on during the Heavitree and Whipton Phase 2 Consultation, and are intended to:

  • Improve road safety at this junction, where there have been several recent collisions
  • Help people walking and wheeling cross the road

During the works, which are expected to start on Monday 7 November and last approximately two weeks, all roads will remain open to people walking, wheeling and cycling, although cyclists may need to dismount. However, the Sweetbrier Lane arms of the roundabout will be closed to vehicular traffic, with diversionary routes in place. Local bus routes may also be diverted.

If you have any concerns and you would like to contact WSP, Devon County Council’s delivery partner, in regard to the proposed works, you can:

  • write to WSP, Keble House, Southernhay Gardens, Exeter, EX1 1NT
  • email UK.DevonHSM@wsp.com
  • call 01392 229700

Please mark correspondence or calls ‘FAO Philip Radcliffe – Sweetbrier Lane Pedestrian Access Improvements’.

If any issues are encountered during construction, please telephone the Devon County Council Highways Department on 0345 155 1004, or send an email to csc.roads@devon.gov.uk.

Devon County Council apologises for any inconvenience caused by the works, which are necessary to improve safety for all, including children walking, wheeling and cycling to school.

Please also see the letter sent to local residents, for more details and maps of the diversionary routes.
