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


The scheme will support the delivery of 300 jobs by 2021
