Resurfacing work on the A386 Tavistock Road

Roadworks

Posted on: 6 June 2019

Work starts week after next to resurface a section of the A386 Tavistock Road between Roborough and Yelverton.

From the 17 to 21 June, the resurfacing work will run from the Dartmoor Diner north for approximately 900 metres.

All the work will be done at night, and the road will be closed between 7pm and 7am. A temporary A-road diversion will be in place and signed for the duration of the work. Please note however, the council must sign diversions that recommend roads of the same classification as the road that is closed. Local traffic may find shorter routes.

South West Highways will be carrying out the work on behalf of Devon County Council.

    So, is it all over now? It’s been a nightmare!

  2. philip says:

    it didn’t need resurfacing , nothing wrong with it , there are far worse roads that need fixing urgently , wtf!

  3. PC Parsons says:

    Pure insanity … having to travel so far out of the way according to your route. One lane at a time wouldn’t close the entire road, thus making it possible for those who need to get where they are going and back, safely and inexpensively.

  4. Gill Stevenson says:

    Is the A386 from the Dartmoor Diner to Yelverton completely closed after 7pm? If so how will the minor roads ( many single track) cope?

    I need to pick my wife up at Plymouth Coach station @2315 hours on 17th June 2018.
    I will be travelling from Tavistock, please advise me on Diversion route

  6. Julie Kast says:

    So what is the diversion route? The map in the link above has to be the most confusing piece of information ever! It had all sort of dates on it and a written description of a diversion route that made no sense and I’m not sure was even the right diversion. Please can I just have a map with the diversion for these road works marked?

  7. A Crane says:

    What is the diversion route provided as I am sure all drivers will have to reconsider timings for commute?

    Regards

    So how does one go from Plymouth to Tavistock by bus after 7.00 pm during this work??

    • Hi. We make sure that the bus companies know about the road closure but we don’t generally know what their plans are to avoid the closure. They will put notices up on bus stops if a bus isn’t going to run. The bus company will be able to provide you with more details. For more information passengers are advised to contact Stagecoach for more information go to: https://www.stagecoachbus.com/plan-a-journey Thanks.
