A361 North Devon Link Road – new junction for east of Tiverton and Challenge Fund resurfacing scheme

Phase one of the new junction on the A361 for the Tiverton Eastern Urban Extension has recently been completed, except for planting which will take place in the autumn.

More information can be found on our News centre.

Challenge Fund resurfacing scheme

The western section of the A361, from Bolham roundabout to east of Gornhay Junction, was resurfaced during the recent development of the new Tiverton EUE junction.

The current phase of work started on Monday 3 September and is due to be completed by the end of spring 2019. This work extends from junction 27 of the M5 to just east of Gornhay Cross Tiverton; a length of 6.5km.

The scheme involves resurfacing of both carriageways, waterproofing two bridges, drainage work, replacement of signs and vehicle restraint systems, the management of the trees, scrub and grassed areas adjacent to the highway and other minor works.

Traffic management

The traffic management will involve lane closures, separately operated overnight carriageway closures and contraflow arrangements. Plans can be found below and these will be regularly updated as work progresses:

The speed limit will be temporarily reduced to 40 mph to protect members of the public and the workforce and the laybys within the extent of the work will be temporarily closed. The remaining traffic management during the day will involve single-lane closures on both carriageways at various locations within the scheme.

Carriageway closure diversion routes (nightwork only)

Scheduled dates, times and plans for nighttime closures can be found on the Mildren Construction website – night closures.


The scheme is being funded by the Challenge Funding Scheme.
