North Devon Link Road affected by overnight road closures for re-surfacing works

MAJOR resurfacing work is taking place on the A361 North Devon Link Road this week.

The full width of a three lane section is being treated from the River Exe viaduct to Stoodleigh Cross and overnight road closures will be in place from 7pm to 7am until Saturday.

Eastbound traffic will be diverted at Newtown via The Blackcat, Bampton, with westbound traffic leaving the A361 at Bolham Road, Tiverton, and following the diversion in the reverse direction.

The road will be reopened from 7am to 7pm, but speed restrictions and traffic management will be in place to ensure that the newly laid surface can bed-in. Lines and cat eyes will the be replaced using daytime lane restrictions.
