  • Joined-up approach to Thorne Lane improvements

    We are working in tandem with Somerset County Council to complete roadworks in Thorne Lane, Yeovil in the new year.

    The road will be closed from Western Avenue to Larkhill Road for eight weeks from 8 January while we carry out main replacement work.

    To minimise disruption, a council scheme to connect a new roundabout in Thorne Lane will also take place while the road is closed - avoiding a direct clash with the ongoing Western Corridor upgrade.

    Wessex Water project manager Barry Derrick said: "Developers are creating a new roundabout in Thorne Lane and we've collaborated with them to complete our works at the same time, meaning there is one single road closure.

    "Towards the end of the road closure there will be traffic lights at the Larkhill roundabout in Thorne Lane for about one week to install a new connection.

    "We will keep residents informed and apologise in advance for any inconvenience caused by our essential main replacement work."

    Cllr John Woodman, Somerset County Council's cabinet member for highways, said: "I'm pleased we've been able to work together to co-ordinate these works so the developer can connect the new roundabout while Wessex Water already have the road closed.

    "The closure has also been planned to avoid a direct clash with the ongoing Western Corridor upgrade.

    "We understand there are a lot of roadworks taking place in Yeovil at the moment which makes co-ordination a challenge, but it is all essential work representing important investment in a growing town."
