The project involves the design and construction of 5.6km of new dual lane all-purpose carriageway, connecting the existing dual carriageway at the Sparkford and Podimore Bypasses, therefore creating a continuous dual carriageway between Mere and the Podimore Roundabout.
The project has recently received approval of the Development Consent Order from the Secretary of State for Transport and the project is forecast to commence on site in late summer 2021 and will take around 2 years to complete.
