Overnight closures will be needed on the eastbound carriageway of the North Devon Link Road near Tiverton from Monday (10 December) to Thursday 20 December.

The eastbound lanes of the A361 will be closed from Gornhay to Junction 27 of the M5 each evening from 7pm for ongoing resurfacing work. The outside lane (eastbound) will re-open at 7am each morning.

The inside lane of the eastbound carriageway, which has been closed for the past two weeks, will remain closed 24 hours a day until Friday 21 December.

This will see the end of the latest phase of the major resurfacing scheme and the road will be fully open from Friday 21 December and throughout the Christmas holiday period.

Work on the remaining 4km of the road from East of Gornhay Cross to West of Holbrook Bridge (Sampford Peverell and Tiverton Parkway junction) will resume on Monday 7 January. This will involve the outside lanes on both the east and westbound carriageways initially being closed, and then a contraflow arrangement will be established.

Contractor Mildren Construction is undertaking the scheme on behalf of Devon County Council.
