Carnival to cause M5 roundabout chaos for Cheddar Valley and Burnham-on-Sea
MORE chaos will ensue on Cheddar Valley roads during early November, as parked carnival carts will close a major route into Burnham-On-Sea.
Queens Drive will be closed from Tesco Roundabout right back to the M5/A38 Roundabout as of 9pm on Saturday November 2, to 1am on Tuesday November 5.
It is expected to cause major problems and congestions on other roads, especially on Sunday November 3, when Burnham will be holding an £11,000 fireworks display on the seafront.
Brent Knoll, Highbridge and even Wedmore can expect a rise in traffic and congestion during this time as drivers will have to find other routes into the seaside town.

The preferred diversion for all Burnham traffic from the M5 area will be along the A38 to Highbridge, turning right at the Asda roundabout onto Burnham Road.
The alternative is to travel through Brent Knoll to Berrow Triangle.
In previous years, the parking of the carts has meant that Queens Drive closed from Tesco Roundabout to Edithmead Lane, Frank Foley Parkway and Queens Drive to the Tesco roundabout.
This year, Frank Foley Parkway will be kept clear over the time period, but will be closed from 4pm on Carnival Night.
Emergency vehicles will not be using Queens Drive as Frank Foley Parkway will be open.
