The temporary contra-flow in place on Brixham Road, Paignton will be removed by the end of this week.
Torbay council made the announcement today on social media, posting on Facebook: “We have some good news for you about the roadworks on Brixham Road! The temporary contra-flow that is currently in place will be removed by the end of this week.
“By the end of today the surfacing of the base layers of the new road will be complete from Roselands Drive up to the pedestrian footbridge by Sainsbury’s. This means that by the end of Thursday all traffic should be back on the correct side of the central reservation, with the right turn lane into Yalberton Road open. Both lanes from Yalberton Road heading towards Tweenaways Cross will also be open.
“To enable the layout at Yalberton Road junction to be put back it will require temporary lights to be in place for part of the day on Thursday while the permanent lights are reconfigured. This will allow the phasing of the lights to be altered to allow traffic from both directions on Brixham Road to run at the same time, with the right turn lane into Yalberton Road reinstated.
“The switchover works on Thursday will also include some temporary and permanent carriageway marking which will require some changes to the road layout during the day
“The new extra lane for Brixham will remain closed for site traffic while the remaining works to complete the drainage, traffic signals and new footpaths are completed.
“The final surface course and new carriageway markings over the whole length of the scheme will be laid in June,”
