route through Highbridge to close for roadworks during May
main road through Highbridge will be shut on several evenings during
May while major roadworks go ahead.
County Council has this week announced that Church Street will
be closed from May 14th-23rd from 6.30pm-11.30pm while resurfacing work is undertaken.
spokesman told Burnham-On-Sea.com that diversions will be in operation
to redirect traffic around the closures to minimise disruption.
roadworks will cover an area between the Market Street roundabout
and Burnham Road - the work will include resurfacing of the road
plus additional kerb improvements."
need for improvements to Church Street was raised by town councillors
last autumn. As reported here,
Cllr Neville Jones said the "crumbling surface" of Church
Street was in "an appalling condition".
traders along Church Street have already voiced concerns about
the possible impact of the closure on their businesses.
