Advance warning of resurfacing on A39 at Walton

Major resurfacing works on a key route between Bridgwater and Street are being planned for early next year.

The essential work on the A39 Main Street at Walton is the fifth phase of significant highway maintenance investment in to the A39 corridor between Bridgwater and Street in recent times.

Due to the narrow width of the road and to keep both the public and workforce safe, a road closure will be required.

Works are provisionally scheduled to start on Monday 5 February and take approximately two weeks.

Cllr John Woodman, Somerset County Council’s Cabinet Member for Highways, said: “We’ve invested a lot of money in the A39 in recent times and this is another stretch of this key route being improved.

“There’s never a perfect time to carry out work like this. We’re doing our best to keep disruption to a minimum and are publicising the provisional details now to give people as much time to prepare as possible. Please get in touch with our highways team if you have any concerns.”
