Half term roadworks in Cannington near Bridgwater as part of new cycleway scheme announced – Somerset Live

#8220;At certain times, we will have to send traffic the wrong way around the roundabout to enable some of the works to take place.

#8220;To keep traffic delays to a minimum, the majority of works which started in June were carried out from the field side using a licence agreement with the landowners.

#8220;However, the project has recently reached a point where temporary traffic lights are now required to ensure the safety of both workers and pedestrians. We are working as quickly as possible to complete these works and want to thank road users for their patience whilst these works are underway.#8221;

The Main Road closure will also mean two bus stops in Cannington cannot be served. Buses of Somerset will place notices on affected stops to advise passengers of their nearest stop.

The cycleway is due to be complete by mid-November and will connect off-road cycle facilities between Cannington and Combwich and link to on-road provision for cyclists through Wembdon, connecting into other cycle improvements within Bridgwater.

A diversion route will be in place directing people to and from the village. Cyclists and walkers may have to be diverted around the roadworks during this period, but will be able to gain access to the A39 south of the village.

During this time, Somerset County Council will widen three pedestrian islands between the Main Road roundabout and Cannington village as part of a new cycleway scheme along the A39 to Sandford Hill.
