EAST Street has now reopened and traffic is beginning to ease.
AN elderly man is believed to have been injured in the collision in East Street, but it is not known how seriously.
THE ongoing Wessex Water roadworks in other areas of town are not helping of course.
Taunton town was rammed today but then that's probably because of all the roadworks 🚧🚦🚙🚗🚕🚚— @Greg4271 07 June 2014
THE closure is causing huge delays as drivers find alternative routes.
Traffic has also been extremely slow in Wellington Road for some time.
THE County Gazette has received reports that East Street is partially closed.
For drivers heading from North Street towards East Street, the road is closed off at the roundabout with Fore Street.
It is understood ambulance crews are attending an accident in East Street.
MOTORISTS face a major struggle to get across Taunton today, with reports that simple journeys across the town centre are taking more than half an hour.
