A303 closure reminder

Don’t forget the A303 will be closed this weekend coming (13 to 16 May) to allow bridge works to be carried out. A 200-tonne crane will be used to lift a new bridge into place. The bridge will be on the section between Sparkford Roundabout at the Podimore roundabout. The bridge should enable construction traffic on the A303 to remain off the main road.

During the weekend closures, clearly signed diversions will be in place via the A359 and the A37. Local people may want to plan ahead for their own routes around the roadworks.

Hannah Sanderson, National Highways’ Programme Manager, adds: “We appreciate the closure will have an effect on journey times, and we appreciate roadworks are frustrating, but we are carrying out this work to drastically minimise disruption throughout the scheme build, and we thank all drivers in advance for their co-operation and patience.”
