Highway works will improve the skid resistance along Topsham Road, Exeter

Posted on: 4 March 2013

Works to improve one of the city’s busiest roads is due to begin on Monday 11 March for four nights.

The A3015 Topsham Road, Exeter is to have retexturing work to rejuvenate the skid resistance of the road surface.

The work, which is carried out periodically, will be done overnight so as not to disrupt daytime traffic, and will run from Countess Wear roundabout to Holloway Street roundabout. 

Temporary traffic lights and/or Stop and Go Boards will be in operation during the work, controlling traffic movement and to protect the safety of the highway maintenance team.

The work is due to start on Monday 11 March until Friday 15 March, from 7pm.

Devon County Council is asking road users to be alert to the maintenance, and is warning of potential delays.

Councillor Stuart Hughes, the Council’s Cabinet Member with responsibility for Highways and Transportation, said;

“It’s normal that road surfaces get a build up of tyre rubber and other material over time, and therefore it’s important to monitor them and carry out maintenance as required to keep them in a safe condition.  This work will improve the road’s resistance to skidding and will therefore benefit the safety of all road users.”
