A379 Higher Brook St (Exeter Rd) - Conversion of Zebra Crossing to a Signalised (Puffin) Crossing

Published: 24 February 2021

The bottom of Shute Hill on the A379 in Teignmouth will be closed to traffic at various times from March 8 until March 19 2021.

Access will be closed to traffic during daytime hours between March 8 to March 12 and overnight March 17/18 and March 18/19.
The closure is to enable road resurfacing and the conversion of a Zebra Crossing into a signalised Puffin Crossing on the A379, Higher Brook Street/Exeter Road adjacent to the junction with Shute Hill.

The work means that traffic will be redirected and, because of the road layout on the A379, it will not be possible for traffic to exit or enter the bottom of Shute Hill during these times.

Shute Hill will be accessible from the north via a signed short diversion, and the A379 will remain open for the entirety of the scheme with a traffic light system in place.
Access to Lidl’s supermarket will also be maintained throughout the works, and access will always be maintained for emergency vehicles.
