About the project

The South Devon Link Road is a 5.5km dual carriageway, which will provide the long awaited bypass for Kingskerswell.  The road will bypass the existing A380 between Newton Abbot and Torbay.

Currently under construction, the major new road is scheduled to be complete by December 2015.   The project was granted full approval by the government in May 2012 and work began in the autumn.

The improved access to Torbay and South Devon is expected to bring lasting economic benefits, leading to the creation of nearly 8,000 jobs in South Devon, with around 3,500 of these in Torbay.  It is predicted that the new road will remove 95% of traffic away from Kingskerswell, restoring and revitalising the village.
