The Closure of the A372 High St. will be from Monday 11 September.
The work will commence with removing the road surface where the drains are to be installed. There will be trenches along and across High Street. This work has to be done first because the material used for past road surfaces cannot be re-used and must be taken to a specialist facility before deeper trenches can be dug for the new drains.
Due to the trenches along and across the road it is not possible to have a partial closure with traffic lights.
For most residents and visitors access will be from the direction of Othery.
The drain installation work will commence at the Langport end of the Village and progress towards the Old Pound. This means that for some people access will be from a different direction as work progresses.
Residents will have access to their properties but those closest to the site of excavations may have delays. Parking on High Street will be restricted.
Residents needing access and those who have no off road parking should speak to the contractors on site who will advise on safe access and where to park. It is important to note that this may change as work progresses.
Access for emergency vehicles will be facilitated at all times. Those with special medical needs or special access requirements such as deliveries, removals or events should contact the contractors on site to make any necessary arrangements.
Further information will be made available when possible.
Royal Mail have confirmed deliveries will continue as normal during the closure.
