Concerning road works taking place near to you

Dear Sir/Madam,

RE: A38 Milestone Lane bridge improvement works extended to 26th January 2017

Kier are working on behalf of Highways England to manage and maintain the trunk roads in Devon and Cornwall and I am writing to let you know that the above works need to be extended by 6 days to Thursday 26th January. Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience this may cause you.

It will be necessary to extend the bridge closure for a further 6 days due to adverse weather conditions combined with unforeseen difficulties with the deck sub surface. Original closure : 9 to 20 January 2017 Extended closure: 20 to 26 January 2017

The bridge will be closed 24 hours per day and over weekends.

*Please be aware that these works have been carefully programmed but are subject to change due to weather conditions or unforeseen circumstances

In order to carry out this work as safely and efficiently as possible, we will need to close Milestone Lane bridge for a further 6 days. Although works will take place during normal day time hours, it will be necessary for the bridge to remain closed overnight and at weekends.

Warning of the closures will be displayed in advance along the relevant section of the A38.

Locally signed diversions will be in place for motorists.

Access will be maintained for walkers, cyclists and other non-motorised users who will be escorted through the works.

We will endeavor to keep all disruption to a minimum and would once again thank you for your patience.

If you would like any further information, or need to contact us, please call our Network Control Centre on 01392 312630. This telephone line is manned 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Yours faithfully,

Andrea Little
