Galliford Try have announced that there will be around 5 weeks of road closures beginning on 11th January.
The will be a temporary closure of Torquay Road between the Aller roundabout and the Romany Jones junction. Diversion routes will be signposted.
Local residents and businesses have been informed.
The South Devon Highway opened last month but work will continue in the surrounding area.
Work is being carried out to complete the junction of Torquay Road and the new extension to Aller Brake Road. The road alignment will also be improved involving substantial overlaying.
It is hoped that the opening of the new road will minimise disruption now that traffic using Torquay Road is substantially lower
However, motorists using the proposed diversions are encouraged to adjust travel times and routes where possible during peak traffic times.
Temporary signals will be put into place and access to local businesses, residents and bus routes will be maintained.
Traffic will be diverted along the new A380 and via Kerswell Gardens signalised junction. An alternate route along the newly extended Aller Brake Road, through Aller and via St Marychurch Road will also be available, although controlled by temporary traffic signals.
The number 12 bus will maintain a route through Aller, through Kingskerswell and along the new Aller Brake Road extension. This route will also be the diversion route for the number X46 and 66 buses.
Traffic will be diverted onto the A380 southbound then into Kingskerswell via Hamelin Way/Kerswell Gardens or onto Torquay.
The exact schedule of closures is being reviewed on an ongoing basis – the weather, among other factors, has an impact upon the construction activity programme.
