A STRETCH of road on the outskirts of Taunton will be closed to traffic for ten days next month.

Somerset County Council has advertised the temporary closure of a 76-metre section of Upcott Road and Shutewater Hill, in Bishop's Hull.

The closure, from Tuesday, August 3 to Thursday, August 12, will allow Wessex Water to carry out works to make anew connection to the water mains.
