Related topics: Highways, transport and environmental maintenance / Partner organisations

Work to repair the A488 from the Nag’s Head to Hanwood – ahead of it being surfaced dressed later this year – will be carried out from Tuesday 20 February to Friday 1 March [2024].

Work will take place from 9.30am to 4pm each day – though there’ll be no weekend working – and will take place in phases.

During these times the road will be closed and a [A road status] signed diversion in place. Access will be provided for properties and business within the closure.

Depending on people’s vehicle type they may be able to choose their own shorter diversion route.

Signs will be erected in the road before starting the work and the work will be completed as quickly as possible.

All planned roadworks are subject to change due to weather conditions or unforeseen circumstances. Any changes will be displayed on the yellow advanced warning signs and on https://one.network/

During the work access to the works area will be restricted to:

  • Essential highway personnel
  • Local residents who live and reside within the road closure
  • Businesses located within the closure (if applicable)
  • Pedestrians, dismounted cyclists and equestrians
  • Emergency service vehicles
