Vinery Lane Update

As part of the construction of Sherford’s main street, now officially named Hercules Road, Vinery Lane was cut in the middle. The junction between Vinery Lane and Hercules Road has been closed to allow for significant construction works to take place.

The above diagram outlines the areas of Vinery Lane affected:

- Vinery Lane South: Running from Sherford Road to Main Street

- Vinery Lane North: Running from Plympton Hill to Main Street

Following construction works, the junction of Vinery Lane South and Main Street is now open to pedestrians and cyclists; direct access is also available from the King George V Memorial Playing Fields to Vinery Lane via a timber gate.

Following the recent poor weather, major works have been delayed and are still taking place to Vinery Lane North, including works to sewage pump mains, local surface water drainage systems and road reconstruction. The Devon banks have now been completed.

It is hoped that Vinery Lane (North) will be open to the public, for pedestrians and cyclists, in mid-May. Regular updates on this will be provided closer to the time.

Vinery Lane will be permanently closed to vehicles at Main Street, however the junction will be open to both pedestrians and cyclists. Bollards are in place on both Vinery Lane North and South to prevent vehicles accessing Main Street.

There is a turning area provided for vehicles on Vinery Lane South, with a similar arrangement soon to be in place on Vinery Lane North.

The construction works will eventually turn Main Street into the main access point for the A38 Deep Lane Junction. Regular updates will be provided as work progresses.
