Day and night closures necessary for road resurfacing work.
MOTORISTS are being warned of major roadworks being planned for the A361 North Devon Link Road from next Monday.
Daytime closures will be made to enable essential resurfacing work, as well as drainage work, sign maintenance, grass cutting, roadmarking and gully cleaning.
It will be closed to all east bound traffic from Newtown Cross to Bolham Roundabout, between 9.30am and 3.30pm, from June 2-6.
The same section of road will be closed to all traffic in both directions overnight from 7pm to 6am from June 2-9.
The road from Aller Cross to Bish Mill will be closed for all east bound traffic from 9.30am to 3.30pm from June 4-6.
It will be closed to all traffic in both directions from 7pm to 6am from June 4-10.
Road closures will be lifted over the weekend although traffic management arrangements will remain in place, which could cause some disruption.
Councillor Stuart Hughes, Devon County Council’s Cabinet Member for Highway Management, said: “Drivers should observe the speed restrictions to avoid damage to other vehicles from chippings and to give the surface the best chance of bedding in.
“Every effort will be made to maintain access to properties at all times but unfortunately some interruption may be unavoidable.”
The council said surface dressing could be delayed in the event of bad weather.
The work follows patching work carried out overnight last week in preparation for the new surfacing.
Diversions will be in place.
