Somerset’s A358 to be dualled

Transport Secretary Chris Grayling has opened a consultation to turn the A358 between the M5 at Taunton and the A303 at Ilminster into a dual carriageway, removing bottlenecks and congestion.

He says: “The upgraded route is long overdue, but we are now taking action to cut congestion on the A358.”

The consultation is here and closes on 20 May.
