Part of Embankment Road closed for repairs tonight

The outbound side of Embankment Road will be closed for repairs tonight, between Heles Terrace and Lanhydrock Road.

Our highways contractor Amey needs to make a permanent repair to the hole that opened up in the road last week.

The closure will start at 7pm and diversion routes will be as follows:

Traffic from Plymstock

  • The inbound side of Heles Terrace will be closed to all traffic except taxis and buses and vehicles accessing Embankment Road shops
  • Traffic heading towards Marsh Mills will be diverted along Gdynia Way, Exeter Street, Charles Street, North Hill, Alexandra Road and Old Laira Road before rejoining the outbound carriageway on Embankment Road

Traffic from city centre/Tothill Road

  • Traffic heading towards Plymstock will be able to use Embankment Road and Old Laira Road as usual
  • Traffic heading towards Marsh Mills/Plympton will join the diversion route at Cattedown Roundabout and travel via Tothill Road, Alexandra Road and Old Laira Road
