Winter is coming

A south west council will be putting its gritters on standby from Saturday, despite the unusually hot weather.
Plymouth City Council said that because of damage caused by the last two harsh winters, its seven gritters will be on standby for the next six months to keep the city's main roads open.

East End Traffic Diversions

Road resurfacing will be taking place across Plymouth’s East End from Monday 26 September for two weeks.  This means there will be traffic diversions in place so that the work can be carried out quickly and safely.
These works can only take place in dry conditions which means the resurfacing schedule will be subject to change. All works will take place overnight to minimise disruption. The current programme schedule includes sections of the following roads on the following dates:
  • Embankment Road, Monday 26 to Wednesday 28 September
  • Laira Bridge Road and Embankment Road, Wednesday 28 September to Saturday 1 October
  • Laira Bridge Road,  Monday 3 to Friday 7 October
  • Laira Bridge Road and Gdynia Way, Friday 7 to Tuesday 11 October
