Posted on: 6 February 2019

Essential resurfacing will be carried out at Longford Lane in Kingsteignton later this month (February).

Work will be carried out during the half term week, starting on Monday 18 February.

The road will be closed each day from 7am to 6pm between Rydon Road and the A383 Ware Cross Roundabout, with the scheme expected to be completed by the end of Friday 22 February.

Councillor Stuart Hughes

Councillor Stuart Hughes, Devon County Council Cabinet Member for Highway Management, said: “Resurfacing is being carried out over an extensive section of Longford Lane so every effort has been made to minimise disruption, with work being timed to be carried out during the school holidays.”

Councillor Ron Peart

Councillor Ron Peart, Devon County Councillor for Kingsteignton and Teign Estuary, said: “I’m pleased that this road is going to be resurfaced. I’ve worked closely with the County Council’s highways officers to make sure this scheme’s done this year and I’m sure everyone who uses it will benefit when it’s finished.”

A signed diversion will be in place via the A383, Newton Road, Gestridge Road, Exeter Road and vice versa.

    I’m unsure where you expect us to park our cars during periods of restricted access? I live in Calvados Park and will need to leave for work at 8am returning at 1645. Will I be able to safely return to my property?

    Will there be access for residents of streets joining longford lane. I live in Hollam Way and will need to take my car out every day to pick up my grandson who I look after also my husband has hospital appointments we will need to get to

    • Hi,
      Local residents who live within the closed section will be allowed access but, unfortunately, this will be limited at times.
      Hopefully people will be able to plan their journeys and, if possible, park vehicles on adjacent streets where access is not restricted.
      The road is fully open overnight between 1800 – 0700, so any journeys during this time will be unaffected.
      Our contractor will be undertaking a letter drop to residents on Monday (11 Feb), to provide further information about access.
      Through-traffic will not be permitted to enter the site when the road is closed.
      While the work is on-going, staff will be on site at the closure points, speaking to residents about access and ensuring it is safe for them to enter the work site.
