Cllr John Woodman cuts the turf at Colley Lane Site

Date_ 25 April 2018

Whitemountain were delighted to mark the start of the 18 month Colley Lane Southern Access Road project with a turf cutting ceremony.

Staff were joined by the Somerset County Council staff and local dignitaries who officially marked the commencement of the scheme with a ceremonial photo. The project includes two new bridges, 840 metres of carriageway and new cycle and footways. As well as connecting Parrett Way to Marsh Lane to tackle congestion along Taunton Road and Broadway, the scheme will also provide access to the Colley Lane Industrial Estate from the south.

Whitemoutain have been holding public information events to keep people up to date on the plans. Bryan Harper, Senior Site Engineers, said: “We are keen to work with the community and keep them informed as our works progress. We would like to thank everyone who took the time to visit our team, at the public information sessions in the Canalside Conference Centre earlier this week. We are really looking forward to delivering this project to improve infrastructure that will support the growth of Bridgwater.”
