Taunton Gateway Park & Ride Closed

The Taunton Gateway Park & Ride is closed today due to health and safety concerns after a number of travelling families arrived to camp at the site.

Avon & Somerset Constabulary as well as Somerset County Council staff are on hand to help motorists. The Silk Mills Park & Ride remains open and motorists are advised to use that site plus town centre car parks.

We are unable to estimate how long the Park & Ride will remain closed but it is likely to be all day today. A further update will be issued this afternoon or keep an eye on Twitter (@SomersetCouncil).

The site is closed due to families and children playing around caravans parked across the site making it extremely difficult for buses and cars to manoeuvre safely.
