motorists warned of five months of roadworks at M5 J23
travelling between Burnham-On-Sea and Bridgwater are set to face
five months of delays as roadworks start at the roundabout next
to junction 23 of the M5 motorway at Dunball.
work is scheduled to begin at Dunball on Monday October 2nd and
continue until February 2018.
work is being funded by EDF as part of a £20m programme of
infrastructure investment linked with Hinkley Point C and is aimed
at improving the traffic flow and reducing congestion.
work will include the installation of new traffic lights, plus a
new park and ride and freight management facilities at the M5 junctions
23 and 24 alongside other park and rides near Williton and Cannington.
spaces were recently opened at the new junction 23 park and ride,
which will ultimately provide parking for over 1,000 Hinkley workers.
says the work will be temporarily paused on the day of the Bridgwater
