Find out more about the Toneway project

A DROP-IN meeting to discover more about the multi-million-pound scheme to improve Taunton’s Toneway Creech Castle Junction is being held on Thursday.

The event is being held at the Brittons Ash Community Hall in Monkton Heathfield from 3pm to 7.30pm and the public is invited to go along to view the plans and question of the technical team delivering the project.

A spokesperson for Somerset County Council said: “Road users travelling regularly along the route may have noticed a change in traffic management layout following this activity which has enabled the contractor access to the next area of work.

“Now there’s an opportunity coming up for the public to meet the team to catch up on the scheme’s progress and find more about what’s coming up and what the junction’s going to look like when it’s finished.

“It’s important to stress this session is purely about the Creech Castle project design, construction and delivery, including traffic management on Toneway and along the closed section of the A38. The team will not be covering other projects or traffic control measures elsewhere at this session.

Cllr John Woodman, Somerset County Council’s Cabinet Member for Transport and Highways, added: “This is a really important scheme to improve capacity at one of Taunton’s busiest junctions, which is currently a major pinch-point.

“But this is also going to hugely improve access for cyclists and pedestrians.

“This is a great chance to have a look at the plans and talk to the team – we’d encourage anyone with an interest to go along.”
