Plymouth. Highly likely traffic chaos

Recommended Posts

Exeter Street Plymouth is open if heading towards the ferry, but closed for a few more weeks if heading out of town. So for the time being follow signs for A386 Tavistock after disembarkation. It is about 4 miles that way to the A38 dual carriageway so  90 minutes was exceptional. Was it because of the crowds attending the Natipnal fireworks championships ?

Took me about that long due to the fireworks a few years ago.

We come from that side too. The ferryport is well signposted from all the A38 exits, but being contrary I pick my way through Devonport instead -  past the naval base and the dockyard and approach Millbay along Union Street. But if you don't know Plymouth well you might want to stick to the signed routes although they will take you though the city centre.  

Avoid the Plymouth Argyle ground on match days - and stay out of bus lanes which are a profitable money spinner for the city council.

Despite the warning on BF website to use the A386 up to the A38  due to the advertised roadworks we decided on arriving at 8.10pm sailing on Saturday that we would try our old route via the Barbican area -Embankment to Marsh Mills roundabout onto the east bound A38. No delays and easy peasy!

I did the same thing after arriving from Roscoff at 8.10pm on Monday - worked a treat!

Report on the SW BBC today about speed cameras in Plymouth, the busiest cameras are on the road into Plymouth city centre, Alma Rd which is the one coming past the railway station.  It's a pain coming from the west, lots of it are dual carriageway with a 30 speed limit.  If you're not used to Plymouth take care.
