Taunton Transport Strategy – notes of the meeting held on Thursday 6th September 2018

Posted on Sep 13, 2018 in Development of Staplegrove - The North Taunton Development, Highways, Parish Council

A meeting was held on Thursday 6th September 2018 to discuss Somerset County Council’s ‘Taunton Transport Strategy’.  In attendance were representatives from Somerset County Council, Taunton Deane Borough Council, Staplegrove Parish Council and the Residents of Staplegrove Action Group.

Please click HERE to see a copy of the notes of this meeting.

The notes will be circulated to those present, and have been sent to Somerset County Council officers with the email below:

“Thank you for last week and I have pleasure in sending the notes of the meeting.

I have to say that we do not accept your statement that a ring road round north Taunton would not be a strategic route.

Your diagram indicating the change of movements for Option 3 shows no increase of traffic on the West Monkton Western Relief Road following the addition of the 500m extension of the Spine Road to Cheddon Road which can not possibly be correct. Your ‘Forecast trip distribution for the Nexus25 development site’ diagram indicates that 60% of the traffic from Taunton will be from north of the town and these vehicles, together with the existing traffic, will wish to use the orbital route to avoid the identified congestion hotspots at St Andrews and Obridge Viaduct, to the benefit of all.

We look forward to your reporting back on the highlighted items.”
