PLANS to close a major road in West Somerset in next month have been postponed.

Signs had been put out warning motorists the A39 in Washford would be closed for five days from February 3.

But Wessex Water confirmed today (Thursday, January 23) that the work was now not going ahead on the dates advertised.

A Wessex Water spokesman said: “Our work on the A39 in Washford has been postponed due to scheduling issues. Advance warning signs were wrongly displayed by a third party and we’ve asked for these to be removed.

“We’ll update customers as soon as a new date for the work has been arranged.”
