A new 800m link road is proposed extending west from the existing roundabout on the A379 Dawlish (Sainsburys Roundabout) across open land. The proposals include a new highway bridge to span over the Shutterton Brook. The proposed road will assist in unlocking land identified for housing developments. Land immediately either side of the Shutterton Brook is allocated for housing development within Areas 3 & 4 of the DA2 allocation. The housing developments are unviable without assistance with the delivery of the required link road and highway bridge.
