The latest in a series of infrastructure enhancements to support the development of 2,500 new homes and employment land on the edge of Exeter.

Works is taking place across two areas, Trood Lane and the Devon Hotel Roundabout.

Trood Lane is being widened and realigned, providing access to a new housing development currently under construction. To service the new residents, footpaths, bus laybys and a pedestrian crossing will be installed.

The Devon Hotel Roundabout is being realigned, creating additional capacity on the western arm of the roundabout, and the benefit of an additional lane on entry exiting the A379 eastbound.

Key Features

  • Carriageway realignment and widening
  • Installation of new footways
  • Installation of new signalised and tactile crossings
  • Installation of new bus bays
  • Associated drainage, earthworks, road marking and signage work

Inspiring the next generation

Inspiring the next generation

We are proud to be a part of the CECA South West Foundation Group where young people in civil engineering come together to help engage with and inspire the next generation. It’s important to us that we connect with the local community and support education providers in their efforts to showcase the diverse mix of career opportunities that are available to students. One example of this at Trood Lane was supporting Cranbrook Education Campus’ Careers Fair which reaches children from year seven through to sixth form.
