Roadworks about to start on A39 Quantock Road

The works to construct the road junctions for the Cokerhurst Farm development are finally expected to start next week. The consultants for the project told Wembdon Parish Council this week:

“After a slight delay, we are now in a position to commence the works at Cokerhurst Farm. The official start date is Monday 12th February, however you may see some enabling activities this week; including delivery of plant and welfare equipment. Traffic management will be placed on the A39 from next week.

“Our appointed contractor, Montel Civil Engineering Ltd, will be issuing a letter-drop to local residents this week. Advance warning signage is also being placed along the key routes.”

David Collin, the Project Manager, has told us that temporary traffic lights will be in place from 8pm to 6am over the nights of Monday 12th to Wednesday 14th February while they install the traffic management and lane restrictions. Any future use of traffic lights will also be at night

Although the A39 will remain open, there will be a temporary 20mph speed limit and reduced lane widths for the duration of the works. Since the introduction of the 20mph speed limit throughout Wembdon, Wembdon Parish Council have noticed a significant drop in the volume of through traffic the village. Councillors will continue to carefully monitor traffic volumes while the work is taking place.

Two new junctions will be constructed on the A39: the more westerly will be a signal-controlled 4-way junction which will also provide access to a separate development on the south side of the A39; the more easterly will be a ‘T’ junction with the secondary access to the Cokerhurst Farm development.
