M32 slip road to close to finish repairs to damage caused by fire

DRIVERS are being warned that a slip road at the M32 Eastville junction will be closed for two weeks this month.

A 13-week programme of work on the northbound exit slip road, from the motorway to the Muller road roundabout, started on May 10.

It aims to repair damage caused by a fire in the backyard of the Eastville Tesco Extra in February last year.

Most of the work will take place during the daytime, with the existing restrictions in place allowing cars and motorbikes to use the ramp. But it will be closed completely from Monday to Friday on the weeks beginning June 14 and 28, to prevent vibrations affecting the setting concrete. 

During the closures, the official diversion for traffic will be via the Hambrook junction several miles away, and back on the southbound carriageway. Signs will be put up to publicise the route.
