Vital maintenance work on the Southbound Carriageway on the A380 outside Kingsteignton begins on Monday, November 4 until the middle of December.
The work will include resurfacing, drainage work, traffic signs work and the replacement of a safety restraint barrier.
This will mean that from 12am Monday November 4 a 40mph speed limit will be in place on both the north and southbound carriageways.
Then, from approximately 5am, only one lane will be open both directions – the outside lanes on both carriageways will be closed.
This is expected to cause delays.
These lane closures will need to be in place until the contraflow is fully set up by the morning of Tuesday November 12 from approximately 5am.
From this point until the work is complete during the night, from 6.30pm to 6am, the southbound carriageway at Kingsteignton, Eagle Farm to Ware Barton, will be closed to traffic with vehicles diverted through the town.
The alternative, signed route for vehicles will be via the B3195, Exeter Road, Gestridge Road, Newton Road, Greenway Hill, Vicarage Hill and Teignmouth Road.
Work on the northbound carriageway will start in the New Year, after the Christmas holidays.
We apologise for any inconvenience.
