The scheme will provide a pedestrian / cycle bridge over the A39 at Roundswell linking new and existing employment and residential areas.
The scheme will replace the proposals to introduce a signalised Toucan crossing of the A39 at Roundswell Roundabout. By doing so, the scheme will reduce congestion and improve road safety by providing a safer alternative walking and cycling route to support sustainable travel to work.
The objectives of the scheme are to:
- Ensure the continued operational effectiveness of the strategic A39/A361 corridor.
- Support development growth in Barnstaple.
- Improve road safety and encourage the use of sustainable travel modes
The scheme will support the delivery of 300 jobs by 2021
