Posted on: 30 September 2019

Crowndale Road in Tavistock will be closed to through traffic from Monday 21 October for up to four days for essential road repairs.

Access will be maintained to Crowndale Recycling Centre and other businesses only during this time. To enable access to the recycling centre, a gateman will be positioned at each end of Crowndale Road to advise motorists and control access.

To avoid delays and enable the work to be completed on time the public are advised to avoid using Crowndale Recycling Centre during this period if possible.

The work is being carried out during half term to avoid disrupting access to the school and college. Please note that some of this work is dependent on weather so durations may vary.

While the road is closed a signed diversion route will be in place via the A386, Plymouth Road. To ensure the safety of our workforce we are unable to carry out this work without a road closure.

    As I wanted to dispose of my old kitchen units I went to the South end of Crowndale road as advised at the end of the reply to Liz regarding access.
    I arrived at the South end of the road 0930ish this morning (Wednesday 23rd) to find it completely blocked with cones, vehicles and workmen.
    I spoke to one of the workmen and told him I was trying to get to Crowndale and he advised me to go to the Tavistock end which I did.
    When I got there it was blocked off with cones and there was no one there to ask about access.
    So after a fairly pointless extended drive I had to return home with a car still full of kitchen units destined for the tip.
    When will the road be open again??

    • Hi Peter, Apologies for the inconvenience this morning, we will speak with the contractor. The road works are now complete and the road will be open as usual tomorrow.

    No sign of any gateman.had to take recycling back home.

    • Hi Liz, I am sorry to hear that the gateman must have missed you.

      The work is proceeding as programmed, with the road expected to be fully open on Thursday.

      Tomorrow (Wednesday), access to the recycling centre will be from the south end of the road for the first couple of hours and from the Tavistock end from around midday.
