Lane restrictions on A30 to be lifted

Restrictions on the A30 near junction 29 of the M5 are to be temporarily removed ready for the bank holiday weekend.

LANE restrictions on the A30 near Junction 29 of the M5 will be removed over the bank holiday weekend.

No road works will be taking place on the A30 or the M5 over the weekend of August 26-29 and both lanes on each carriageway of the A30 will be open.

However, some elements of the road works have not been completed so 50mph and 40mph speed limits will remain in place.

The scheme, which is being led by Devon County Council in co-ordination with the Highways Agency and in partnership with East Devon District Council, Exeter City Council and the Exeter and East Devon Growth Point Team, has been in progress for two months.

Routes for cyclists and pedestrians are being maintained for the duration of the works.

The scheme, which will provide access to the Exeter and East Devon Growth Point, is due to be completed by summer 2012.
