No opening date for 40 Steps bridge over Taunton railway line

This is The West Country: 40 Steps bridge in place at Staplegrove Road, Taunton. 40 Steps bridge in place at Staplegrove Road, Taunton.

A NEW bridge is going up over the railway line off the junction of Staplegrove Road and Chip Lane, in Taunton.

But people who used the old 40 Steps before it was taken down to cross from the Rowbarton area will have to wait a little longer.

A Somerset County Council spokesman said the opening date has not yet been fixed.

County councillor Justine Baker said: “This is the issue that most people have contacted me about – when it will re-open, especially for the school run as many have been driving since the old bridge was removed.”
