As shared by Cllr Leigh Redman this morning, Somerset Country Council have said,

“Unfortunately we will be shutting the Penel Orlieu junction (High Street, A39 Broadway, West Street) down at 11.0am this morning, (4th July), to repair another sink hole that has opened up in the junction next to the safety repair we made on Fri.

“The closure will be for approximately. 20 mins whilst the essential safety repair is undertaken.

“A comms message has gone out, but we expect traffic to build up throughout Bridgwater as a result.

“We are working with the Traffic Management Team to arrange a suitable date to undertake investigatory works and a permanent solution, as I am sure you can appreciate, this will require a full closure.

“Please note until a date can be agreed, we will need to undertake any emergency safety works as and when they arise in accordance with our Highway Safety Inspection Manual.”
