A379 engagement

We're asking residents who live near or travel through Plymstock using the A379 specifically between Pomphlett Roundabout and Elburton Roundabout to help us take stock of recent road improvements.

The A379 is a main route into the city from the east and we need to strike the balance between encouraging more people to use buses, walk or cycle and making improvements to keep our traffic moving. Not only does sustainable travel reduce the amount of cars on the road, it is healthier and helps to improve our air quality – something all cities have to address.

Given the scale of house building taking place to the east of the city a number of road improvements have been completed between Pomphlett Roundabout and Elburton Roundabout. These have been designed to create extra road space, improve traffic flow and increase safety for cyclists and pedestrians as well as drivers and bus passengers.

A three-week engagement is asking local people to give feedback about how the road improvements have affected them and if there are any changes that could further improve travel along the road.
