Busy Burnham-On-Sea road to shut for four months for water works

A busy road in Burnham-On-Sea is set to close for FOUR MONTHS due to major roadworks, it's been confirmed this week.

Love Lane will shut, from the junction with Stoddens Lane to the Tesco roundabout, from 9th Jan 2017 through to 19th May 2017. The closure will allow Wessex Water to lay new sewer pipes.

Lauren East, a Wessex Water spokeswoman, told "We’re currently carrying out essential improvements to the sewerage network in Brent Knoll, as part of a larger scheme to reduce the risk of flooding during times of intense rainfall."

"Part of this work involves laying new sewer pipes along Love Lane and the fields adjacent to Stodden’s Lane, so some site traffic may be visible."

"To lay new pipework in Love Lane, the road will be closed between Stodden’s Lane and the roundabout for approximately four months. An approved diversion route for through traffic will be in use during this time."

"We apologise for any inconvenience caused while we complete this work as quickly as possible."

A full diversion route will be in operation throughout the work to try and minmise disruption. Affected residents are also being contacted regarding the arrangements during the works.
