Plymouth Herald story on Forder Valley Link Road


The Plymouth Herald ran a front-page headline on Saturday 18 May, warning that the ‘route between Marsh Mills and Estover’ would be closed during work on the new Forder Valley Link Road.

We would like to make it clear that the section of Forder Valley Road that will be closing next year is the stretch between the Novorossiysk Road junction and Fort Austin Avenue.

The closure will be in place from Summer 2020 for 17 months, while work to construct the new and enlarged junction and the new road is carried out.

The Forder Valley Link Road is one of the city’s biggest ever transport infrastructure schemes.
