Thorne Lane - road closures January 2018

There have been two temporary road closure notices received from the County Council, both Orders starting on 8th January 2017:

(1) Prohibition of traffic proceeding along Thorne Lane, from the junction with Tintagel Road, westwards, for a distance of 175 metres. This is to allow Somerset Highways to carry out footway and kerbing works. Any questions, you can contact Somerset Highways on
0300 123 2224
(2) Prohibition of traffic proceeding along Thorne Lane from the junction with Gypsy Lane and Larkhill Road, westwards, for a distance of 400 metres. This is to allow Wessex Water to carry out water main replacement in the road. The order becomes effective on 8th January and remains in force for 18 months – but the works are only expected to last for 8 weeks. Wessex Water can be contacted on 0345 600 4600 if you have any questions.
The alternative route is exactly the same for both, as attached.
