calls for action on busy Highbridge road's poor condition
councillors have this week called for urgent improvements to be
made to the poor condition of a main road through Highbridge.
At a meeting of the council's Town Improvements Committee on
Monday evening (October 24th), councillor Neville Jones said the
surface of Church Street needs attention since it is crumbling
apart in several places and will likely get worse over the winter
"This busy road is in an appalling condition and urgently
needs resurfacing," he told the meeting.
"Church Street must have one of the worst road surfaces
in the whole of Somerset for such a busy route."
The road has been dug up many times in recent years during roadworks
and has been patched up each time when the work restarts.
The town council's clerk is taking up the issue with Somerset
County Council's highways department.
