Progress with the Eastern Junction is continuing. Following tender, six submissions were received. These submissions are currently being appraised with the aim of appointing a contractor within the next few weeks.
Following appointment of a contractor the aim is for construction to start in July 2020. It is anticipated that the scheme will be complete at the end of April 2021.
It is likely that a contraflow system will be in place on the A379 between Matford and Devon Hotel Roundabouts for the majority of the construction phase. Every effort will be made by the contractor to minimise disruption to the travelling public. There will be some requirements during the programme for a number of overnight full closures. More detail on traffic management proposals and timings for overnight closures will become available once a contractor has been appointed.
