Overnight road closures announced for A30 near Honiton while potholes are repaired

National Highways has announced overnight road closures near Honiton on Monday night (March 14) for resurfacing and pothole repairs.

A ‘number of safety improvements’ to the A303 between Southfields roundabout, Illminster, and the A30 junction west of Newcott, near Honiton, begin on Monday night, closing the road for five nights.

National Highways said:

  • For safety, the A303 will be closed from Southfields roundabout and the A30 junction west of Newcott from 8pm to 4am, Monday (March 14) to Friday (March 18) During the day the road will be open as usual.
  • National Highways will be carrying out multiple tasks at various locations and where possible the noisiest works will be completed before 11pm, and access for residents will be maintained but may involve a short delay depending on the stage of work.

The work involves surfacing and pothole repairs to help to ensure safe journeys for motorists.

National Highways said drainage maintenance, vegetation clearance and sign repairs would reduce the need for future closures along the road.

Julian Strong, service delivery manager for National Highways, said: “We appreciate that roadworks can be frustrating, but we are making every effort to ensure the impact on the local community is kept to an absolute minimum.

“We’d like to thank motorists in advance for their patience while this essential safety and maintenance work is carried out.”

National Highways said Somerset County Council has a 13-night road closure planned for the A358 at Hatch Beauchamp, starting on March 16.

A spokesperson for National Highways said: “Both National Highways and the council will be working together to ensure both works can take place safely and to ensure disruption is kept to a minimum.”
