Residents are told to take holiday if they can as four roads are closed at same time including one short stretch which means a 19-mile diversion!!
The following roadworks are creating havoc with commuters within Devon –
1. Wolborough Street will be closed 24 hours a day from Monday, February 12, to Saturday, February 17, for the work will take place between Wolborough Street traffic lights (Asda) and the Ogwell Cross roundabout.
2. The A383 Ashburton Road will be closed between its junctions with Elmwood Avenue and Barton Drive from 6:30pm to midnight between Monday, February 5, and Friday, February 16 while preparatory work is carried out in advance of path improvements.
3. Work at Ware Barton, around Kingsteignton, on the A380, where are the daytime lane closures and 40mph speed restrictions in place throughout the duration of this work to ensure the safety of site staff and the travelling public during the latest phase of the programme of repairs on the A380. There will also be a 40mph speed restriction on the northbound carriageway for safety when the bridge deck works are taking place in the outside lane (lane two).
4. From Monday, February 12, there will be daytime lane closures with a 50mph speed restriction in place, and full closures overnight from 7pm to 6am on Monday to Friday evenings at Telegraph Hill. This will enable drain cleaning and vegetation clearance to be carried out, which is expected to take about four weeks to complete

A377 – Chapel Downs, Crediton
This work will take place on the A377 between Queen Elizabeth Drive and Higher Road, in order to stabilise the carriageway edge and resurface the cracked section of road.
The scheme commenced on 15 January 2018 and will continue for approximately 4 weeks (weather dependent). The road will be closed 24hrs a day but could be re-opened sooner subject to favourable conditions.
A381 Wolborough Street, Newton Abbot
Work will take place between Wolborough Street traffic lights (Asda) and Ogwell Cross roundabout, Newton Abbot during the half-term week of 12 to 17 February 2018. The road will be closed 24hrs a day during this period with a diversion route advised for through traffic.
Carrying out the work during half-term will avoid disruption to the substantial number of school bus services which use this route.

A382 – Temporary traffic lights at Great Tree Park

The lights are due to be in place at least until April 2018 and are required due to a collapsed culvert (a structure allowing water to flow under the road).
