SRA-funded works to reduce flooding on the A39 at Carhampton are ahead of schedule, so new road closure arrangements are being brought in. From Tuesday 19 October, on weekdays only, not Saturday and Sunday, the A39 at Carhampton will instead be closed from 6.30pm to 11.30pm. These evening works are expected to be completed by Thursday 28 October.
Works to reduce flooding on the main road serving West Somerset will be carried out from Monday 11 October. Somerset County Council's Highways department has teamed up with Somerset Rivers Authority (SRA) for a £350,000 scheme of major drainage improvements on the A39 at Carhampton Cross and the B3191 Eastbury Road. The extent of the work means road closures will be needed. Diversions will be in place from Williton and Dunster out across Exmoor. Every effort will be made to get the works done as quickly as possible.
