A BUSY road linking Taunton to its motorway junction will be closed for three nights.

From December 14 until December 17, the A358 between the Blackbrook Interchange and Hankridge Roundabout will be closed from 8pm until 5am.

Roadworks have been taking place on this section of road this year as part of a multi-million pound project to widen the A358 Toneway and improve Junction 25.

The three-night road closure will be in place on the northbound and southbound carriageways.

The roadworks have been causing problems with motorists, with no end in sight yet.

Customers have reported getting stuck for lengthy periods of time when visiting the businesses at Hankridge, with some shops claiming to have lost money.

But the council says the traffic management set up is essential to keep road users safe while the work takes place.
