A358 Closure 15th/16th June

Somerset County Highways will be surface dressing the A358 Williton to Taunton road on the West Bagborough section on Monday 15th and Tuesday 16th June.  As this section of road is narrow, the road will need to be closed for a period of time in order to get the machinery through.  The agreed closure dates and times are:

Monday 15th June 2020 between 09:30am and 12:30pm (3 hours)
Tuesday 16th June 2020 between 09:30am and 12:30pm (3 hours)

The diversion for heavy vehicles will be from Williton to Taunton via Bridgwater, using the A39 and A38.  Light vehicles will be able to avoid the closed section of A358 by using the B3190 and B3224 via Raleghs Cross.

During these periods the number 28 Taunton to Minehead bus service will avoid the section of A358 between Bishops Lydeard and Williton, and instead divert via Raleghs Cross.

Please be mindful of this and allow additional travel time if using these routes.
