A SECTION of a residential street in north Taunton will be closed to all traffic for five days in May.

The temporary closure is to enable Wessex Water to carry out water supply separation works in Portman Street.

The closure is for 50 metres starting 145 metres west of the street's junction with Cheddon Road.

It will run from Monday, May 16, until Friday, May 20 for 24 hours a day.

There are no alternative routes for the closure.

The works promoter will contact residents directly to discuss access arrangements.
