Overnight closure of Forder Valley Road and Novorossiysk Road

Graphic showing diversion routes for overnight closures on Forder Valley Road and Novorossiysk Road

Forder Valley Road and Novorossiysk Road will be closed overnight for around six weeks from Monday 9 May, while the final surfacing and white lining works are completed on the new Forder Valley Link Road junction.

The closure will be in place between Fort Austin Avenue, the BP petrol station and Miller Way between 7pm and 6am (not including Saturday or Sunday nights).

The section of Forder Valley Road between Leigham Roundabout and the petrol station will remain open but only for access to and from the petrol station and Wilburt Road – there will be no through route.

The closures will not be implemented over the Jubilee bank holiday weekend (from midnight on Wednesday 1 June until 7pm on Monday 6 June).

Northbound traffic will be diverted via the A38 to the Manadon Interchange and then via A386 Tavistock Road northbound, Budshead Way, Crownhill Road and Fort Austin Avenue. Southbound traffic will be diverted via Novorossiysk Road towards The George Junction, A386 Tavistock Road southbound, the A38 and Leigham Roundabout. Local traffic will be able to reroute through Leigham and Eggbuckland.
