Temporary one-way system for Glastonbury High Street

A one-way system is to be introduced temporarily to Glastonbury High Street to support social distancing and the control of coronavirus.

The measure will start on 26 October during half term and will last for a number of weeks with an end date yet to be confirmed.

Key details:
• The one-way system on High Street will be in effect between the junctions of Benedict Street and The Archers Way with the permitted direction of travel being Eastwards up the High Street.

• The section of High Street between Lambrook Street junction and The Archers Way junction will remain two-way.

• There will be a signed diversion in place which will utilise Lambrook Street, Chilkwell Street, Bere Lane, Fishers Hill and Magdalene Street.

• The 7.5. tonne weight limit on Lambrook Street and Chilkwell Street will be suspended while the one-way system is in operation to enable large vehicles and buses that would normally travel down the High Street (Westwards) to navigate the one-way restriction.

• Public bus access up the High Street is not affected, however buses cannot travel down the High Street which means services will not be stopping adjacent to the Abbey car park on Magdalene Street; they will be required to follow the signed diversion.

• A short section of parking on Archers Way between High Street junction and the car park will be suspended to facilitate right turn movements for large vehicles from the High Street.

Details on the diversion route and updates are available on http://www.travelsomerset.gov.uk.
