The weather helped add to the warm welcome for today’s visit to the A380 South Devon Link Road site visit today hosted by Galliford Try and sponsored by Devon Construction Training Group Ltd.
The visit was co-ordinated by Patrick Beasley and Tracey Waygood, and included a presentation on the project by Construction Manager Lee Humphries. Lee and his colleagues Darren Bowen and Ian Smart then gave the visitors a full tour around the site in their 4×4 trucks.
The South Devon Link Road is a 5.5 km dual carriageway, which will bypass the existing A380 between Newton Abbot and Torbay (and predicted to remove 95% of the current traffic away from Kingskerswell). The new road is scheduled to be complete by December 2015, having been underway since autumn 2012. To find out how the project is progressing, visit their website www.southdevonlinkroad.co.uk.
