SCC will be surface dressing the A358 Williton to Taunton road on the West Bagborough section on Monday, 15 and Tuesday, 16 June. As this section of road is narrow, the road will need to be closed for a period of time in order to get the machinery through. The agreed closure dates and times are:-
- Monday 15th June 2020 between 09:30am and 12:30pm (3 hours)
- Tuesday 16th June 2020 between 09:30am and 12:30pm (3 hours)
The diversion for heavy vehicles will be from Williton to Taunton via Bridgwater, using the A39 and A38. Light vehicles will be able to use the B3190 and B3224 via Raleigh’s Cross in order to avoid the closed section of A358.
During these periods the number 28 Taunton to Minehead bus service will avoid the section of A358 between Bishops Lydeard and Williton and instead divert via Raleigh’s Cross.
Face masks mandatory at NHS Hospitals
The Department for Health and Social Care (DHSC) has announced that all staff in hospitals in England will be provided with surgical masks which they will be expected to wear from 15 June. NHS staff already wear face masks in clinical areas within two metres of a patient, but the new guidance applies to everyone working in all areas of the hospital.
Members of the public are strongly urged to attend hospital wearing a face covering, but a face mask will be provided in emergencies. DHSC is working with the social care sector to implement a similar approach. Read more here.
