Overnight lane closures 26/27 April and weekend road closure 5-8 May

An overnight lane closure and temporary traffic signals will be in place on Bridge Road in Exeter tonight (Wednesday 26 April) and tomorrow evening (Thursday 27 April).

On both evenings, the signals will be in use from 8.30pm and up to 5.30am the following morning. The lane closure is needed to enable safe working during the installation of sockets for new traffic signals north of the Bascule Bridge, which will eventually replace the existing pedestrian crossing at the canal.

The next weekend closure of Bridge Road is planned to take place from 10pm on Friday 5 May until 5am on Monday 8 May for the continuing installation of cantilever beams and spans for the Countess Wear pedestrian and cycle bridge.

The diversion route will be signed via Topsham Road, Alphington Road, Marsh Barton and the A379. Details of the diversion route are available here.

Details of changes to Stagecoach bus services will be available at https://www.stagecoachbus.com/regional-service-updates/south-west/greater-exeter

Information on diverted bus services is also available here.

Pedestrians and cyclists will be able to access Bridge Road during the closure via temporary paths. They are advised to take care and follow the site signage and any instructions from site staff.
