Highways England are about to hold several public information events along the A303/A358 corridor, to raise awareness of plans for the route and provide communities with an opportunity to give their initial feedback. These information events will also lay the foundations for future consultations on the three major improvements that are being developed for the route (A303 Amesbury to Berwick Down, A303 Sparkford to Ilchester, and A358 Taunton to Southfields).
Local events are as follows:
25 February – Monks Yard, Horton Cross Farm, Ilminster TA19 9PT
26 February – Creative Innovation Centre CIC, Memorial Hall, Paul Street, Taunton
The events will be open to the public from 13:00 until 19:00 during which Highways England staff will be available for people to talk to and ask questions about the improvement plans.
Do go along if you are interested to know what this major engineering project will mean for our local area.
