Temporary end to roadworks misery in Highbridge town centre

Long-suffering businesses in Highbridge have finally been given some good news after a temporary end to major roadworks in the town centre.

Work in Church Street has come to a halt for two weeks over the busy Easter holiday period to avoid additional traffic congestion.

"The workmen and their equipment were removed on Friday (April 3rd), but they will return on Monday April 20th to finish the job," a spokesman for the contractors carrying out the work told Burnham-On-Sea.com.

The work to replace gas mains along Church Street began in January and has caused endless queues of traffic, as pictured above, and consequently hurt the trade of local businesses.

Burnham-On-Sea.com revealed last week that businesses along the road were fuming after being offered 'compensation' of just a few pounds as part of a temporary reduction in the Rateable Value of properties affected.
