Motorists warned of bypass closures

Series of weekend closures on the cards throughout April and May.

MOTORISTS are being warned of a number of weekend closures planned on the Barnstaple Western Bypass at Lake Roundabout throughout April and May.

Essential reconstruction and resurfacing will be carried out by South West Highways on behalf of BAM Nuttall Ltd, before Devon County Council adopts the road.

The work will be carried out in two phases over six weekends, starting from Lake Roundabout to Bishops Tawton Roundabout on Saturday, April 14.

The second phase will then focus on the section from Lake Roundabout to Roundswell Roundabout, from Saturday, May 5.
