Public exhibitions to discuss A303

10:48 10 July 2014

A series of public exhibitions are being held to look at improving the A303.

The events are being held by Devon County Council, supported by Somerset County Council, and take place today (Thursday), at Monkton Court Hotel, Monkton, from 3pm to 8pm, and Monday, July 14, at The Sidmouth Arms, Upottery, 3pm to 8pm.

The drop in sessions will set out the progress of the study, which is looking at improving the A30/A303 between Honiton and Broadway, and the next steps to improve the route.

Councillor Andrew Leadbetter, the cabinet member for economy and growth at Devon County Council, said: “Improvements to the entire A303 is a priority for our partnership, so we are pleased that the Government is undertaking a feasibility study to consider future improvements along the whole length.”

The study is part of a wider campaign, led by Somerset, Devon, Wiltshire and Dorset Councils, as well as the Heart of the South West Local Enterprise Partnership, to lobby and put the case to Government to improve the entire A303/A358/A30 road corridor between Honiton, Taunton and Amesbury.

The results will feed into the Government’s full review of the route from Stonehenge to Honiton, carried out by the Highways Agency, which will publish its finding in Autumn 2014.
