A series of overnight closures will start on the A379 Bridge Road, Exeter next week to allow essential safety barrier replacement work to take place.

The road will be closed in both directions from 7pm, reopening no later than 7am the following morning from Tuesday 27th to Friday 30th August, Monday 9th to Friday 13th September and on Wednesday 18th and Thursday 19th September.

Other general maintenance work has also been coordinated to be carried out during the closures to avoid further disruption.

Access for pedestrians and cyclists will be available, but they are advised to use the footway/cycleway to take care to avoid construction vehicles.
