Traffic information

A379 Sandy Gate Roundabout/Rydon Lane, Exeter

What we are we doing

The road is being closed to enable joint sealing of the cracks in the carriageway and for road markings and studs to be applied to the carriageway.

Road closure

The road will be closed from Monday 16 March to Friday 20 March. In order to try and alleviate disruption, the road will be closed overnight, between the hours of 7.00 pm and 7.00 am.

We must ensure the safety of our workforce and the public, in order to comply with our safety guidelines we are unable to carry out this work without a road closure.

As this is a narrow section of road we have to close the road for periods to give our workforce a safe working zone, however, we have worked hard to ensure that the closures are short time periods where possible in order to reduce the disruption to road users to the minimum.

Diversion route

We have a duty to direct traffic along a similar standard of road to that being closed so that all vehicles, including large articulated vehicles, can safely use the diversion route, avoiding low bridges.

Both the official diversion route and the alternative route for light vehicles will be treated with salt during periods of cold weather.
