A38 Manadon Flyover closures among latest Plymouth roadworks

The A38 Manadon Flyover will be closed tonight as part of the latest list of roadworks schemes getting under way in Plymouth this week. The road is closed in both directions tonight from 7pm to 6am for drainage survey works.

It is one of a number of new schemes in Plymouth taking place. On Wednesday and Thursday night, there are alternating lane closures on Outland Road closures in both directions between Weston Park Road/Ham Drive junction and Manadon flyover, 7pm to 6am.

From today on Octagon Street, lasting until Thursday, July 25, there are four-way signals at Flora Cottages junction 24 hours a day (manually controlled at peak times). This is for gas utility works.

Plymouth City Council has helpfully put out a list of roadworks that will be taking place across the city over the next week. The council is responsible for coordinating works carried out by utility companies, developers and other organisations as well as their own repair, maintenance and improvement works.

They maintain all public roads in Plymouth except the A38, which is managed by National Highways on behalf of the Department for Transport.

“We know there's no good time to close roads, especially on busy routes and we do everything we can to co-ordinate planned works and minimise their impact on our transport network,” a City Council spokesman said.

The following roadworks are taking place in Plymouth between Saturday 6 and Saturday 13 July .
