Update on Bishops Lydeard roundabout scheme

A developer scheme to build a new roundabout on the A358 at Bishops Lydeard is making good progress and a scheduled road closure due to take place next week (9 January) is no longer required.

The roundabout is being delivered by contractor SWH Civils on behalf of Taylor Wimpey as part of a legal agreement linked to the construction of new homes in the village.

Evening road closures of the A358 will still be required in the week beginning 20 February for the installation of a new underpass.

There will also be a need for the A358 and Greenway to be closed later in the programme for the new road surface to be laid. Details of this phase of work will be confirmed nearer the time.
