A main road near Stratton-on-the-Fosse has now reopened after improvements to the drainage system finished early.

The A367 Bath Road at Nettlebridge reopened last night ahead of schedule after major work to upgrade drains, pipes and culverts under the road.

Cllr David Fothergill, Somerset County Council’s Cabinet Member for Highways, said: “This was vital work before winter and should help reduce the risk of surface water and flooding on a busy A road.

“We’re committed to investing in our highways and I’m pleased this is another successful scheme we’ve been able to finish ahead of schedule.”
