Roadworks, Wincanton, 23 -27 January - likely road closure.

Wessex Water plan some mains sewer repair/replacement works on Bayford Hill just over the brow as you drop into Wincanton.  Roughly adjacent to the new houses building site.

UK.one.network says road closure and advance notice yellow road closure signs are already out.  No indication yet of diversion.  I will update if I get more info.

Coombe Street closure until 25th November

I understand that Wessex Water are back in Pen to fix a domestic water leak just below Queen's grove.  Official info and one.network suggest a possible closure there until 25th November.  Previous experience suggests it may not be that bad or that long but exercise caution.

Travel Somerset website

Combe Street roadworks

Wessex Water are fixing a couple of leaks in Combe Street.  This work should finish Thursday or Friday.  Mostly you should be able to get through, but this is not guaranteed.

The road closed sign at the foot of Long Lane can probably be ignored as access to the Combe St/Bleak St junction seems unaffected.

You can use the very useful website one.network  to check on roadworks.  Just keep zooming in on your place of interest.

Earlier start for waste and recycling collections

6am starts for crews as temperatures soar

Recycling and rubbish collections will start an hour earlier for the rest of this week in response to rising temperatures.

Somerset Waste Partnership (SWP) is asking residents to make sure their waste is ready for collection from 6am putting it out the night before if needed.

Waste collection is hard, physical work and early starts help limit the time crews spend working in the hottest part of the day.

The early starts may…
