Overnight closures planned on Bickington Road, Barnstaple

Posted on:

Overnight road closures are planned at Cedars Roundabout in Barnstaple next month (April) as part of ongoing work at the site.

Bickington Road will be closed from 6:30pm-6:30am between Monday 29 April and Friday 3 May while new traffic signal loops and ducts are installed in the road.

Unfortunately, due to the width of the carriageway this work cannot be undertaken without a closure.

Bickington Road will be closed between its junction with Ellerslie Road (to the west) and Cedars Roundabout (to the east). All other routes to Cedars roundabout will be maintained – including access to the Cedars Inn from the south and east.

Residents who live in Ellerslie Road will be able to access their homes from the Fremington direction as normal. However, access from the east will need to be via Woodville and Crosslands. Residents of Longmead and Trelawn will also have access maintained from the Fremington direction, although access to Trelawn will be controlled by site staff at the Ellerslie Road junction.

During the overnight closures a signed diversion will be in place via the B3233 and A39. By law, the Council has to sign diversion routes on the same category of road as the road that is closed, but local road users may decide to use alternative routes.

The work is weather sensitive which may affect the scheduled timings. Trailer mounted variable message signs (VMS), will be located near the site to provide updates on any potential changes.

During the daytime, work will continue on Cedars roundabout with temporary traffic lights in place.

In addition to these overnight closures on Bickington Road at the end of April, further closures will also be required on the A3125 (southern arm of the roundabout) in late May / early June to allow work on the southern arm of the roundabout to be completed. This work will include road marking, resurfacing and high friction surfacing. Exact dates will be confirmed nearer the time via the VMS signs located on site.
