Daytime road closures on A3072 Holsworthy delayed
Posted on: 19 June 2019
The A3072 at Holsworthy will be closed between Waterloo Road and Coles Mill Bridge for an extra day on Friday 28 June from 7.30am, reopening no later than 5pm, to allow essential resurfacing work to be completed.
The road was due to reopen on Thursday 27 June but unfortunately the schedule has been set back due to the breakdown of an essential piece of plant machinery on site.
Signed diversion routes will be in place.
Essential resurfacing work on the A3072 at Holsworthy has been delayed due to recent poor weather.
Daytime road closures were due to start on Monday 17 June but have been postponed until the end of the week and into next week.
The road will now be closed between Anvil Corner and Waterloo Road for resurfacing on Friday 21 June, Monday 24 June and Tuesday 25 June and then between Waterloo Road and Coles Mill Bridge on Wednesday 26 June and Thursday 27 June.
The road closures will be during the daytime from 7.30am, reopening no later than 5pm each day.
No vehicles will be able to park on the road during the work. Access for pedestrians and emergency services will be maintained. For all other vehicles a recommended diversion route in both directions using roads of equal category will be signed, although motorists with good local knowledge may use minor roads to work their way around the closure and short cut the diversions.
The official signed diversion route for all vehicles less than 12 ft high will be in place via Anvil Corner to Holsworthy Beacon to Holsworthy and vice versa. For vehicles over 12 ft high the diversion is via Holsworthy, Whimble Cross to Anvil Corner and vice versa.
Access to residential properties and businesses within the closure will be able to have vehicular access their properties by liaising with the site foreman, although there may be a short delay until it is safe to pass. Pedestrian access will be available throughout the work.
The scheme is being carried out by contractor Skanska.Posted in: Environment
