Tiverton EUE New A361 Junction
Griffiths have been appointed by Devon County Council to build a new junction from the A361 near Tiverton. This is key to the development of the Tiverton Eastern Urban Expansion and will provide additional capacity and enable access to the employment sites in the north west of the area as well as service the proposed future residential housing infrastructure in this area. Phase 1 includes a left in left out junction on the A361 east of Tiverton including earthworks, drainage, landscaping, safety barrier, acoustic barrier / fencing and resurfacing of the A361
In outline our work around Tiverton will consist of the following:
Construction of a ‘left in left out’ junction on the A361 east of Tiverton including earthworks, drainage, landscaping, safety barrier, acoustic barrier / fencing and resurfacing of the A361 in both directions either side of the new junction. The junction will be developed via the A361, minimising disruption to residents, meaning all construction traffic will access and egress here.
Construction commences on 4th September 2017 with a Lane 1 (slow lane) closure westbound on the approach to the new junction until Christmas.
Following Christmas, Lane 2 (overtaking lane) will be closed in both directions to install cross-overs.
Between mid-January and end of February the A361 will travel in contraflow to enable resurfacing works to take place during the day.
Finally, the Lane 1 closure westbound from the M5 will be reinstalled to complete the new junction tie-in with completion planned in Summer 2018.
Details of Traffic Management Plans will be added to this site and updated as the project progresses including feature plans of the scheme, latest news, events, community benefit initiatives and frequently asked questions.
