Taunton Gateway Park & Ride reopens

Taunton Gateway Park & Ride will be open for business as usual tomorrow morning following the departure of travellers who had illegally occupied the site today (Wednesday).

The travellers left the site peacefully at around 8pm this evening. No significant clean is was required and the service will be operating as usual from 6.40am tomorrow (Thursday).

There will be a security presence on the site for the next 24 hours to ensure there are no further incidents and to reassure users of the service.

The Park and Ride Service was closed today due to health and safety concerns when around 30 travellers in cars and caravans set up camp late on Tuesday before the Park and Ride closed.
