Listed: Somerset roads that will be repaired

Could the end be in sight of the curse of pot holes? Finally Somerset Highways Department have listed the roads they intend to repair this summer in the county. Many motorists have complained about a lack of repairs to the county’s roads which have left in many cases dangerous surfaces causing punctures and damage to vehicles. For cyclists, motorcycles and pedestrians the consequences are even worse with the only people benefitting from the neglect being the tyre firms.

In total the County Council say 200 miles of roads will be repaired beginning in June. However much of the work will involve surface dressing or top dressing. A thin layer of bitumen is poured onto the road with a layer of chippings rolled on top of the melted surface. It may help to protect the road for a few years for weeks afterwards the chippings lead to damage to paintwork, small stones throne up into the faces of pedestrians, smashed windscreens, a skid danger for cyclists and motorcyclists and the ditches and drainage culverts filled with loose gravel.

The council say they will repair the pot holes at the same time, a statement which many motorists may take with a pinch of salt.

However there will be no road works on the A38 at Rooksbridge so traffic will not be congested near the Stables Business Park near Brent Knoll.
