Businesses in Kenton will continue to be open and accessible to the public during the final week of roadworks on the A379 from Monday (25 March).

The resurfacing work is progressing well and there will be no road closure tonight, Friday 22 March and no weekend working with the last night for the whole scheme due to be Friday 29 March.

From Monday March 25 to Friday 29 March the road will be closed between the junction next to Mill Farm (north side of the closure), and near the Warborough Hill / A379 junction (south side of the closure).

People who live or work in streets cut off by the closure will be allowed access to homes and businesses during the night-time closures, although they may be asked to wait a short time until it is safe to do so.

There will be no through road access and unlike the previous week of works vehicle access from the north into Kenton will not be possible.

For those wishing to access residences and businesses by car should approach the road closure point via the south of the work only (Teignmouth, Dawlish or Starcross via Mamhead).

From there you will be able to travel as far as Kenton Victory Hall. At this point you will be able to access Slittercombe Lane or Warborough Hill.

Slittercoombe Lane will then give access to Penhayes Road, Staffick Close, Manor Gardens, East Town Lane and Orchard Way.

The triangle, “High Street” and central Kenton car park can be accessed via Warborough Hill and the single track Witcombe Lane and Pitt Hill, which will bring you into Kenton from the south west towards the middle of the road closure point. Please note these are narrow single track side roads and should only be used to access businesses and residences.

Access will always be maintained for emergency vehicles

On approach speak to the gateman at the closure point. You may be asked to park elsewhere and be guided past on foot or to access the other end of the road closure.

Alternatively all vehicles will be able to get around the closure by following the official diversion here.

The official signed diversion route will be in place via the A379 (southbound), A381, A380, A38 and A379 and vice versa.
