Yeovil road closure
Somerset County Council’s Highways team will be closing Preston Road in Yeovil between 16 January and 20 January. The road will be closed between A37 Ilchester and the junction with Summerleaze Park and Westfield Road. The closure will be from 7.30am to 6pm Monday to Friday during these dates and a diversion will be in place. The road will be reopened in the evenings but will be closed at the height of the morning and evening rush hours.
SCC tell us that the work is being carried out during day hours as this is a residential area. They also note that the route is in close proximity to four care homes.
The road surface is showing significant signs of wear and tear. SCC say it needs repairing as soon as possible to avoid further serious deterioration.
Councillor Mike Rigby, Somerset County Council’s Executive Lead Member for Transport and Digital said: “Undertaking these works during the day will reduce disruption for local services. However, we understand there will still be disruption and our team will do everything they can to minimise this.“
