Roundswell Phase 2, Barnstaple

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:

  1. Ensure the continued operational effectiveness of the strategic A39/A361 corridor.
  2. Support development growth in Barnstaple.
  3. Improve road safety and encourage the use of sustainable travel modes

Outputs:

The scheme will support the delivery of 300 jobs by 2021
