Somerset Council’s Highways team are resurfacing the ‘Wickes’ roundabout in Taunton next month.

The road will need to be closed between 8:15pm and 6:00am each night from Monday 4 September to Friday 15 September so that the work can be completed. The road will remain open on weekends.

This is a busy roundabout in the town and delays will be inevitable, but the work has been scheduled overnight to minimise disruption as much as possible.

Councillor Mike Rigby, Somerset Council’s Executive Lead Member for Transport and Digital said:

“This roundabout is a very important one in Taunton, but it has reached the stage where it needs to be resurfaced.

“The team will make every effort to ensure that there is as little disruption as possible for road users, but please expect some delays on the evenings that the work is being undertaken.”

Access for residents and businesses in the immediate area will be maintained throughout and a diversion will be in place, with full details available nearer the time on the Council’s Roadworks and travel information webpage.
