Morlaix Drive road improvements

Morlaix Drive is identified as a key strategic route for buses linking the east with the north via the Forder Valley Link Road scheme. It will support improved reliability and journey times for bus services including park and ride services from the Deep Lane Park and Ride when that becomes operational.

The Morlaix Drive scheme will widen the existing road connecting Brest Road to the Derriford Hospital Interchange in order to allow it's use as an effective route for buses avoiding Derriford Roundabout. Minor junction improvements at either end of Morlaix Drive will also be undertaken.
