Major Road Scheme A375 Sidford Road Sidmouth

We (Devon County Council) will be carrying out carriageway resurfacing and drainage work on a 0.550 km section of the A375 Sidford Road in Sidmouth as it has reached the end of its serviceable life and there are several infrastructure problems. We will be repairing utility covers and gullies, replacing parts of the drainage system and using trenchless technology to repair other sections. We will be carrying out the maintenance of the highway signs and road markings will be reinstated once the new road surface is completed.

In general we will be using two types of Traffic Management to carry out the work safely within the time frame for the scheme:

1. Road closures with diversions ( diversion route shown on plan below)

2. Temporary traffic lights to keep one lane open for use

These works will require the road to be closed while we excavate and replace the highway surface and repair sections of the highway drainage system. Traffic will be signed to use suitable diversion route which is shown below. Access will always be maintained for emergency vehicles. We will work mainly during the day to minimise noise disruption to residents and maintain access for residents. Where work can be carried out safely using temporary traffic lights, this method of traffic management will be used in order to minimise delay and disruption to the travelling public and to residents.

This work will take place between the Monday 19th September 2022 and the Monday 17th October 2022. The work will be carried out in sections, closing a section of road at a time, completing the work in one section before starting work on the next section of highway. The road will not be closed on the 24th September due to the Sidmouth Carnival. Here is the link to one network which shows the highway networks road works:

When we are carrying out work in the vicinity of side roads and therefore access will be restricted due to this work, we will provide advance notice to these residents and endeavour to reinstate the highway as quickly as possible. We ask

for residents’ patience at these times. Traffic Management personnel will be on hand to help and advise.

We plan on sending out letters on the 5th September to local residents with a set of additional letters to side road residents later in the work period. The webpage is due to go live on the Devon County Council website on the 31 August.
