Overnight closures on Bridge Road next week

Night-time closures of Bridge Road over the next fortnight will enable final areas of surfacing to footpaths and the replacement of the control system for the canal bridges to be completed.

Bridge Road will be closed overnight for eight nights over the next two weeks on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays (18-21 September and 25-28.)  Closures will apply from 8.30pm to 5.30am the next morning, except on Monday 25th, when the road will be closed from 10pm-5.30am.

The diversion route during the closures 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

The works will include many trial openings of the canal bridges, and pedestrians or cyclists using the road during the closures may be held up if the bridges are open. They are advised to take care and follow the site signage and any instructions from site staff.

Further updates will be posted on the Bridge Road Widening Scheme website.
