Motorists were expecting to have to wait until 1st Sep 2017 for the Mile Hill Road to reopen after it closed last month. But the A378 Langport Road reopened on Tuesday evening, 22nd Aug, more than a week ahead of schedule.
A section of road between Wrantage and Fivehead, known locally as Mile Hill, has been closed since July for essential flood prevention works. A five-week closure was expected with an end date of 1st Sep, but Somerset County Council says work has progressed faster than hoped meaning an earlier than expected reopening.
The route has been susceptible to flooding in recent years with water on the road during times of bad weather. Around 300m of new pipe has been laid under it and new drains and gullies built to help the water drain away faster. This will also allow resurfacing to take place at a later date.
