Roadworks Update Tues 10 October

The A372 remains closed to traffic but residents have access subject to delays around the work site due to machinery. Once the current phase of work on Kerbing is completed, hopefully by early next week, the A372 closure will be lifted but Church Path will be closed as work commences.

Roadworks Update: 2 October

From Tuesday 3 October Ridley Hill will be blocked but Aller residents will have access to/from the village at the Langport end of High Street. 

Once the current work is completed it will be necessary to carry out improvements to the drains that take water from the new system. This work will be done without the need for further road closures.

Recycling & Refuse Collection

Some recycling was not collected from High Street on Tuesday. District Councillor Gerard Tucker is working with Somerset Waste Partnership to ensure next weeks' collection is made. Current advice is to have refuse/redycyling out on the usual day but before 7am, for collection before the roadworks start for the day.

Roadworks day 2

From today there is a 24 hour closure at the Langport end of the village it will not be possible to squeeze through the gap as some people did yesterday. 

There was an incident last night when a Fire appliance was delayed at the closure due to a communications issue between Somerset County Highways and the Emergency Services. The Fire Brigade routinely attend from both sides of the village and will amend their response for the duration of the works.

The issues of access, communication and the lack of a means to resolve issues as they arise have been raised with Somerset County Council and will be taken up by our County Councillor, Clare Arparcio-Paul.

Please be aware that the team doing the work are contractors and they are not responsible for decisions about closures, signs and the like. There have been several reports of them being helpful to residents with access issues and doing their best to help. Please treat the workers on site with respect.

Refuse / Recycling will continue as normal but collections may be made at 7am so be sure that your bins and boxes are out in plenty of time.
