TODAY is the last chance for residents to have their say on the proposed upgrade to the A358

The Highways England consultation for the road running between Taunton and Southfields Roundabout (near Ilminster) runs until 11.59 tonight (July 16). 

Project manager, David Stock, said: “Gathering a wide range of views from the local community will help us shape our plans for the next stage.

“A second round of public consultation will follow in 2018, when we will ask for feedback on more refined proposals.

“This is the last of our series of five public events and we look forward to meeting people face to face to hear their views on how our plans could help deliver benefits to the area.”

The option HE has chosen to consult on is option 8/8B + NFS. This option does not link to Junction 25 (J25) to allow for a new-all movements junction 3.5km south of J25. It does not have a direct interchange with the A378.

The redevelopment comes alongside two other consultations to form a better corridor to and from the South West.
