Chiverton’s magic roundabout will close A30 again

National Highways is again closing the A30 overnight from Chiverton Cross to Boxheater tomorrow night and Friday night.  The road will be closed each night from 8pm - 6am.

The closure is required to undertake a traffic switch at Trevalso and associated works in the area, stemming from the removal of the old Chiverton Cross roundabout and the construction of a new interchange.

Many motorists have complained the new road design is even more confusing than its predecessor.

The B3284 south will be open to Chybucca interchange where motorists will be able to turn left only onto the A30 (westbound) towards the new Chiverton Interchange.

“We’re carrying out the work overnight when traffic levels are lower to minimise disruption,” said National Highways.  “Please plan ahead and allow a little extra time for your journey.”

The Chevron Traffic Safety Control Officer helpline number, for landlocked residents whose only way out is onto the A30 and who need access during the night is 07918 586974 - a residents’ pass will be provided.

A safety vehicle will attend and escort residents out of the closure area.
