Overnight closures on Bridge Road from 3 July to 6 July

Bridge Road in Exeter will be closed overnight over four evenings next week for resurfacing work.

The road will be closed from 8:30pm to 5:30am each evening from Monday (3 July) to Thursday (6 July). Resurfacing will take place between Matford Roundabout and the Canal Bridges.

The original road surface will be removed over the first two nights, with surfacing laid over the following evenings. The road will re-open during the daytime, but all traffic will have to travel on the planed surface without road markings, therefore drivers are asked to reduce their speed and take extra care. Cyclists who normally ride on the road may prefer to use the cycle path while this work is ongoing.

This work is weather dependent and may have to be cancelled at short notice. Contingency closures may go into the following week in this instance.

During the closures, 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

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.

Updates will be posted via the Bridge Road Widening Scheme website where you can sign up for alerts.
