Developers dig deep at Blagdon Hill junction

This is The West Country: Paul Drake, of NatWest, with Graham and Malcolm Tottle. Paul Drake, of NatWest, with Graham and Malcolm Tottle.

DEVELOPERS of a £4million scheme of four social houses and 11 residential units at Blagdon Hill have invested £100,000 in reconstructing a dangerous junction.

Graham and Malcolm Tottle, of Harold Tottle & Son, are siting the development, due for completion in spring 2015, on the firm's former yard after securing a £1.8million laon from NatWest.

There is a mix of two and three bedroom homes and six large detached properties, all being marketed by Grenslade Taylor Hunt.

Graham said: “The project has been supported by people in the area which was very important to us as we grew up here.

“Working in the local area with local businesses means we can trust the quality of the work and the project has a community feel to it.”

Why has this story been republished? It was only on here the other day

This 'dangerous' junction is more dangerous now if you ask me, especially for people who have lived in the area for years and used to the original alignment but now moved away.

I was travelling along here from Blagdon Hill (at the speed limit) and nearly got caught out by the new junction alighnment as I turned in to head towards Pitminster.

I am not convinced it is safer for those travelling on the original roads but it would be safer for those entering/exciting the new development

Yes the social housing has gone to local people, I have lived in Pitminster parish most of my life, and my neighbours all have a local connection to the parish. I agree swjoduk that the junction is more dangerous now, because if you want to turn rightvout of the junction towards Taunton, you cannot see clearly up the road to see what is coming.
