Team effort to reduce flooding on A39 in Carhampton

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.
