A STREET that has been closed to traffic for 14 months has re-opened.

Railway Street, in Taunton, had been closed during work buidling a block of 40 flats on Kingston Road.

Vehicles were originally barred from the one-way section of road for safety reasons at the start of September last year.

Pedestrians were still able to use the street, which leads to nearby St Andrews Primary School, but diversions were in place for motorists.

No 1 Kingston Road Ltd - a part of Acorn Developments - which built the homes, will be renting them out.

The development has been built on the site of the former Riley's snooker club, which was previously Kingston's nightclub and before that a cinema.
