Road Closures

We have two road resurfacing schemes scheduled for nightworks in November 2019 in your area. These works will follow on from the A3124 Beaford village scheme.

  1. Scheme – A3124 Torches Corner, Beaford

From the 12th of November to the morning of the 18th of November we will be patching sections of the A3124 located near Beaford. This scheme will commence at Torches Corner and finishing at Venton Farm.

(See attachments for scheme location and diversion route)

The works will be carried out over a total of 4 nights, under a road closure and a signed diversion will be in place. The diversion is planned for traffic to be diverted West bound on the A3124 through Beaford until reaching Torrignton. Turn Left onto the A386 to travel South bound through Little Torrington, Merton and Hatherleigh. Once travelled past Hatherleigh take the Left onto the A3072 through Jacobstowe then continue on this road to take the next left back onto the A3124 after Sampford Courtney. Keep on the A3124 North bound and through Winkleigh until reaching the diversion end.

We are aware that this is a very long diversion approximately 38 miles long, but we have had to cater for heavy goods vehicles. Car drivers local to the area will, I’m sure find their own shorter diversions.

 

  1. Scheme – A3124 River Torridge, Greater Torrington

 

Upon completion of the Torches Corner scheme the River Torridge scheme will begin on the 19th of November and complete on the morning of the 26th of November. We will be resurfacing the 1100m scheme starting at Wooleigh bridge.

The works will be carried out over a total of 5 nights, under a road closure and a signed diversion will be in place. The diversion is planned for traffic to be diverted West bound on the A3124 through Beaford until reaching Torrignton. Turn Left onto the A386 to travel South bound through Little Torrington, Merton and Hatherleigh. Once travelled past Hatherleigh take the Left onto the A3072 through Jacobstowe then continue on this road to take the next left back onto the A3124 after Sampford Courtney. Keep on the A3124 North bound and through Winkleigh until reaching the diversion end.

We are aware that this is a very long diversion approximately 38 miles long, but we have had to cater for heavy goods vehicles. Car drivers local to the area will, I’m sure find their own shorter diversions.

 

The diversion route directs traffic along a similar standard of road to that being closed so that all vehicles, including large articulated vehicles, can safely use the diversion route. Lighter traffic with good knowledge of the area will be able to use local roads to take shorter routes around the closure. PLEASE NOTE NO WEEKEND WORKS WILL TAKE PLACE
