North Street Road Closure


The B3165 North Street Martock, between, The Pinnacle and Coat Road has been identified for major carriageway resurfacing and associated improvement works.   

The resurfacing process involves the use of a large planing machine which will remove the old surface of the road to an average depth of 100mm. This is followed by the laying of a new material using a surfacing machine. 

 

Due to the width of road, and for the safety of the workforce and the travelling public, it will be necessary to close the road to all vehicular traffic to execute these works. Pedestrian access will be maintained at all times. 

 

It will be necessary to undertake preparatory works in advance of the carriageway resurfacing taking place. Works will include, replacing damaged kerbs and upgrading /repairing, where necessary, the existing drainage systems.

 

We provide an indicative works programme below for information: 

 

When undertaking such major projects, all reasonable steps are taken to keep disruption to a minimum. That said, unfortunately, given the scale and nature of the process, an element of inconvenience is inevitable.  

Should you wish to discuss the proposed works in more detail, contact can be made with the local Area Highways Office at Yeovil, on tel. 0300 123 2224, or by email via countyroads-southsom@somerset.gov.uk.
