A3079 Fowley Cross, Okehampton
What we are doing
We are carrying out carriageway resurfacing work on A3079 Fowley Cross to Cookworthy Farm via Halwill Junction as it has reached the end of its serviceable life.
- The highway surfacing work will be carried out in a series of day-time closures with diversions in place.
- There will be work carried out during the night under controlled traffic management without the use of closures and diversions.
- There will be no weekend working.
We will be repairing utility covers and gullies as required, cleaning the drainage system and carrying out maintenance of the highway signs and verge work. New road markings will be reinstated once new road surface is completed. Work to improve the visibility to signs where not possible to carry out at this time will be carried out after bird nesting season.
When and where we are closing the road
The road will be closed from 6 April until 19 May daytime, between the hours of 7.00 am and 7.00 pm, Monday to Friday (Except Easter holidays 10 and 13 April).
Access will always be maintained for emergency vehicles.
Why we have to close the road
Traffic Management is needed due to the extent of the works being undertaken on the road and for the safety of the workforce. The majority of the work will be done under a road closure.
We are obliged to sign diversions that use roads of the same classification to the road that is temporarily closed. Drivers may choose to use local knowledge to identify alternative, and possibly shorter, routes.
