30mph speed limit extended on Oldford Hill
THE 30mph speed limit on Oldford Hill is to be extended up the hill into the town.
Somerset County Council highways team has been carrying out major road improvements along Coalash Lane, which was closed for several weeks last month.
As part of these improvements it was decided that the 30 mph limit that currently ends half way up the B3090 Bath Road will be extended to the junction of Gypsy Lane and Cuckoo Lane.
A Somerset County Council spokesman said: "These measures are part of a wider scheme to improve roads in the area.
"The key concern is the junction of the A362 and Coalash Lane where a number of collisions have been recorded.
"We have also reviewed other speed limits in the area, including along Cuckoo Lane and Oldford Hill.
"This package is aimed at making improvements to an area of local concern and reducing casualties."
