Roadworks

A3124 near Rosemoor Gardens

Work will be taking place on the A3124 just north of Beaford, commencing on Monday 10 September 2018.  Works will be carried out under a full road closure but when safe it will be reduced to two-way traffic lights.  The works will run until the end of November.

What are we doing?

Along the A3124 there is a section of highway (30 metres) which is showing serious signs of cracking and has deteriorated/worsened overtime.  No existing edge support to the carriageway has been identified and in addition, there is no road restraint system in place to protect errant vehicles from the road edge.

To repair the carriageway and provide long lasting support as mass concrete retaining wall will be constructed, which will be finished with a masonry parapet to protect vehicles from the steep bank below.  Resurfacing of the highway will also be carried out.

What traffic management will be used and when?

The traffic management will be in the form of a full road closure which will be in place 24/7. This road closure will be in action for much of the scheme to safeguard both the contractor and members of the public.  However, if possible, we may consider the use of two-way traffic lights to allow the road to be reopened earlier than anticipated.

LGV and HGV diversion routes

For this closure we have provided both a light vehicle and HGV (heavy goods vehicle) diversion route.  Both diversion routes can be found here which will display the exact routes.

Can I claim compensation?

There is no legal obligation or express statutory authority that enables Devon County Council to compensate for increased costs or any financial loss suffered as a result of the traffic management in place.

Whilst every effort is made to inconvenience the public as little as possible, there are times when however regrettable interruptions cannot be avoided.
