Surfacing work will be carried out on various dates in the coming weeks, council warns

The North Devon Link Road is facing several closures in the coming weeks as surface dressing work is carried out.

The section of the A361 from Stoodleigh Cross to Aller Cross will be closed from 7pm to 6am from Monday until Thursday next week (June 6-9).

The next phase will see daytime closures from 6am to 6pm from Monday, June 13 to Wednesday, June 15, following by 24 hour traffic control on Thursday, June 16 and Friday, June 17.

Overnight closures will resume from 7pm to 6am from Monday, June 20 to Saturday, June 25, to complete the work.
