Call for improvements to Somerset M5 junction
8:00pm Saturday 21st September 2013 in News
A LEADING politician has called for improvements to junction 25 of the M5 at Taunton to cope with extra traffic.
Cllr Mark Edwards, deputy leader of Taunton Deane Council, says the roundabout at the junction needs to be increased in size, with additional lanes, full signals and improved cycleways.
The proposals, likely to cost £10million, have been discussed over many years and Mr Edwards hopes to win Government cash for the project.
He added: “The time has come for the required improvements to J25 and with the Government looking to invest in infrastructure to improve the economy, I can’t think of any single development that could have more impact.”
