Bath and North East Somerset Council have announced more roadworks in the area.

The Council has issued a road closure notice, under the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984, which prohibits traffic from travelling on Radstock Road in Midsomer Norton from 2nd February. Essential upgrade works are due to be made to the existing puffin crossing and surrounding resurfacing.

The road closure is expected to last for eight days but could take a maximum of 21 days. The road will only be shut through the evening from 7 PM until 7 AM.

Radstock Road will be closed from the junction with A362 Station Road/Stone's Cross roundabout extending east for approximately 42 metres (or the length of a cricket pitch).

The Council have suggested a diversion route of A362 Radstock Road - A367 Wells Road - A367 Fosseway - A37 - A362 Main Street - A362 Old Mills - A362 Thicketmead - A362 West Road - A362 Station Road - vice versa.

The Journal are aware that this is a four-mile diversion, directing motorists to use the currently closed Station Road.

If you are trying to reach the High Street, we would suggest taking a right off the B3355 roundabout onto North Road and turning right onto the High Street at the Stone's Cross roundabout.

The closure and diversion will be indicated by traffic signs. Access will be maintained for residents and businesses.
