It has been announced today that Devon County Council has been successful in its bid for Department for Transport (DfT) funding to upgrade the NDLR.
The funding will go towards a £93 million scheme which will widen the North Devon Link Road from South Molton to Barnstaple to provide more overtaking opportunities. Junction improvements and safety upgrades will also be carried out from South Molton to Bideford.
A planning application is now due to be submitted later this year, with a Full Business Case being submitted in 2020, which would potentially allow construction to start in late 2020.
