Lee Mill Slip Roads
The A38 Lee Mill junction currently uses the historic Plymouth Road as an eastbound off-slip, rather than a purpose-built facility. As a result, traffic heading to the industrial estate from the west must pass through Lee Mill village, leading to concerns over noise, air quality and road safety.
In response to these concerns, Devon County Council developed proposals for a new eastbound off-slip to the east of the existing slip road. This would connect traffic to the industrial estate and the village via a new roundabout, which would replace the existing priority junction where Beech Road and Plymouth Road meet.
The existing eastbound off-slip would be stopped up to through traffic and no longer provide access from the A38. This would allow Plymouth Road to return to an appropriate function.
