The access road onto Berrow beach has been fully re-opened again following a temporary closure earlier this week.

Sedgemoor District Council, which manages Berrow beach and the entry road onto it, had said that high tides over the Christmas period had prompted its decision amid concern that the road surface would be damaged.

Council spokeswoman Claire Faun told Burnham-On-Sea.com: “Due to extremely high tides at Berrow, the access road to the beach was closed to vehicles nut is now fully re-open.”

The road has been closed several times over recent years amid concerns that the sharp edge to the access road that’s left when sand is washed away during high tides could lead to damage to tyres and vehicles.
