Urgent A361 closure to fix burst water main

An urgent 24-hour closure of the A361 this weekend has been agreed by Somerset County Council on behalf of a utility firm to fix a burst water mains.

Whitstone Hill in Pilton will be closed from 5pm Saturday for 24 hours while important work is carried out to repair the mains which is leaking at a substantial rate.

Residents will continue to have access to their properties while the work is carried out.

A diversion will be in place – regrettably this will cause some inconvenience but the contractor is aiming to ensure work is completed by Sunday afternoon.
