Somerset Council will undertake resurfacing works on the A39 High Street in Porlock, near Minehead, next week.

The resurfacing works will take place from Monday 24 April to Friday 28 April. These works will be undertaken under a night-time road closure from 6.30pm to 11.30pm. A diversion route will be signed.

The works involve a stretch of road along the A39 High Street, from the junction of Parson Street towards the war memorial at Dunster Steep.

Councillor Mike Rigby, Somerset Council’s Lead Member for Travel and Digital, said: “We recognise that these works will inevitably impact on the community, and we have been engaging in the village since last month and want to do our very best to manage and mitigate it.

We chose this period as when we last resurfaced a similar section of carriageway within the village it was the least disruptive between the holiday of Easter, the Spring Bank Holidays and the remaining summer season.
