A38 Harcombe Cross to Haldon drainage repair and upgrade
Highways England plans, builds, operates and maintains England’s motorways and major A roads. I am writing to let you know we will shortly be carrying out roadworks near to you. A map detailing the location is included within this letter.
What we’re doing
We’ll shortly be carrying out drainage upgrade and repair works, as well as some resurfacing. This work is part of Highways England’s continuing investment in the strategic road network in the Devon area.
Why and what are the benefits?
The existing drainage has deteriorated with age. We will repair and upgrade drainage in the area to ensure it is better able to cope with severe weather events.
When will this work take place?
Start: evening of 15 August 2019
End: morning of 7 October 2019
Hours of work: overnight Monday to Friday, 8pm to 6am
To minimise disruption, we’ll work overnight when there are fewer vehicles on the road. During the day we will keep the carriageway open as usual.
Please note that the precise dates and times of the works may be subject to change due to weather conditions or unforeseen circumstances. Where possible, we’ll keep you updated of significant changes via roadside warning signs.
