Ilminster Bypass Survey 27 June 2021

Highways England will be carrying out surveys on the Ilminster bypass.

For the safety of our workforce the surveys will take place overnight when traffic flows are at their lowest. We anticipate that the surveys will take no more than 3 hours to complete. Please accept our apologies in advance for any disruption which may be caused.

The A303 will be closed in both directions between Horton Cross and South Petherton. Motorists will be diverted via the B3168, New Road and Hope Road and vice versa before rejoining the A303.

Highways England always aims to work to the programme, however unforseen circumstances and adverse weather conditions may mean there are changes to it. Highways England will make every effort to ensure the impact on the local community is kept to a minimum.

If you have any questions or would like further information, please contact Highways England Customer Contact Centre on 0300 123 5000 or by email:
