More roadworks on the A358
Work to repair and improve the A358 between Taunton and Ilminster will take place next week. Somerset County Council’s highways team will be rebuilding and resurfacing the carriageway at West Hatch over a 10-day period starting on Monday 2nd February. The work will take place at night (7pm-7am) to minimise disruption, and will use temporary traffic lights to ensure that no road closures are required.
The county council claim that this is much more of a rebuilding of the road than a simple resurfacing job and the road will be finished off with “an innovative new surface which should help it stay in better condition and reduce the need for future maintenance.”
