The single-lane closure on the A361 North Devon Link Road near Tiverton will switch lanes this weekend.

The outside lane of the eastbound carriageway, from Uplowman Bridge to Junction 27 of the M5, has been closed for the past three weeks as part of the major maintenance scheme which is continuing on the road.

The eastbound carriageway will be closed overnight from 7pm on Friday (23 November) to enable the closure to be moved over to the inside lane. A signed diversion will be in place.

The outside lane (eastbound) will be back in use from 7am on Saturday (24 November), with the inside lane closed 24 hours a day until Thursday 20 December. The westbound carriageway remains unaffected with both lanes open.

Contractor Mildren Construction is carrying out the upgrade of the road surface and drainage on 6.5km of the road on behalf of Devon County Council.
