Puckeridge road shut
Essential work on the B3168 at Puckington started this week and will last for at least a further 6 weeks. This is long planned work that had to be postponed when priority was given to repairing the subsidence at the Beacon near Ilminster last year. The Beacon is on the recognised diversion route for this scheme so the two pieces of work could not be done at the same time.
The work is to undertake major drainage improvements especially around the junction with Stocklinch Lane. Diversions have been organised and are signposted but regular users of this road will appreciate it is likely to add at least 15 minutes to your journey time.
