I am sure many people will still remember the congestion on the old road.

On a summer Saturday, the journey from Exeter to Okehampton could take as long as four hours! The museum survived on travellers who broke their journey in Sticklepath.

When the final link is complete, drivers will be able to travel along dual carriageway for over 100 miles between Exeter in Devon and Camborne in Cornwall.
