An announcement about the application for funds for a possible roundabout with 'slip roads' at the Creech Castle
junction is expected shortly (works in the region of £7.6m).
A bus gate will be installed on the old A38, also known as Bridgwater Road, at the Bathpool end. This will be used to restrict traffic past the school and will likely be completed when the Western Relief Road
has been opened.
PROPOSED A3259 BUS GATE
Further traffic modelling is planned in 2018 following the opening of the WRR, the installation of the A38 bus gate and the development at Hartnells Farm (just off the A3259 opposite the Charles Church development). This will inform ongoing discussions regarding options for traffic calming vs bus gate on this road.
