The Bishops Tawton Roundabout is a very busy junction in Devon on the A377, with the A39 multiplexing with the A361. Prior to the opening of the Barnstaple Western Bypass, this used to be part of the A39. Heading eastbound from the roundabout, there used to be a short S2+1 section as far as the Newport Road bridge. However, most of this section has been hatched over, and there is an extended right hand filter lane heading towards the roundabout. At the same time, an extended left hand filter lane was added for traffic heading east towards the roundabout. Presumably this was done to improve access to the Barnstaple Park & Ride site just off the B3138. During much of the year, especially the summer, the roundabout is queued up with traffic from all directions.
