Porlock Resurfacing Work

Notice of Resurfacing of the A39, High Street, Porlock

We have received conformation from Wessex Water that the sewer line on the A39 High Street Porlock (Dunster Steep) is in a suitable condition to reline internally later in the year, and therefore will not require an open dug trench. With this information we have advised Milestone that there is no risk to the resurfacing scheme planned for the 24th – 28th April, from 6:30pm -11:30pm each evening, and to continue with delivery.

Our advance signing and VMS signs have been in place since 4th April. To date we have received one enquiry from a resident within Porlock area, whom we have been able to assist, and we will also be visiting a local business which has raised questions about our scheme.
