THE one-way system and pedestrianisation scheme, introduced in Bridgwater town centre to support social distancing, is to end tomorrow (Friday).
The move comes after the latest lockdown and closure of non-essential shops.
The temporary scheme introduced last summer was funded by Government and overseen by Somerset’s Active Travel Group, which represents the five local councils, police and public health.
The scheme – in Eastover, East Quay and Salmon Parade – was among a number set up in towns across Somerset. Most have now ended, with the one in Yeovil finishing next Friday (January 29).
However a second funding block, amounting to just over £450,000 for Somerset, was recently announced by the Government.
This cash is set up to enable more permanent measures to support walking and cycling in Somerset and an announcement will be made soon regarding which schemes will be pursued.
