Likely reply from TDBC Traffic Planners - 'Who Cares'. They've allowed Wessex Water to over-run on the water works and the relief road roundabout which is being worked on by Captain Slow and his dawdling crew so why should another dozen road closures matter? 'Better still, they close them from lunchtime and bring the town to a complete standstill. I am surprised they ever put in J25 because who in their right mind would want to invest in Taunton. Why couldn't they make all concert goers travelling by car park on the Firepool fiasco wasteland by Viridor?

For your information clever clogs, the local authority have no powers to stop statutory undertakers (i.e. Wessex Water) from working on the highway in fact Wessex Water can dig up wherever and whenever they want and only have to retrospectively inform the authority of such works. Secondly when these works were planned and agreed there was never an intention for Lord Rod and his travelling circus to arrive here for a concert. Thirdly the works on Wessex Water are not overrunning they are in fact ahead of schedule (check the county council website to check on dates before you start spurting on about overruns). Next the works on the Third way were delayed by Central Governments intervention and then they demanded that the works had to be complete by next spring or monies would be withdrawn. With the amount of work that is required to be carried out for this scheme including the building of three new bridges they are trying their best to minimise disruption for this very much needed relief road. A road that if it was in now (as the local authority had planned before central government intervention) this would certainly help with the 'Traffic Chaos' you refer to. These roads need to be built and do cause disruption, they don't magically appear overnight you know! and when built it will certainly ease the congestion in the town centre. Lastly, it would be best to ask the Police why the roads have been shut at that time as they would ultimately make this decision which the local authority would have to abide by.
I hope this has answered your gripes Mr Meldrew!

........ and for your information 'even more clever clogs than I am', until recently I regularly checked the Wessex Water Taunton road closures website before I 'spurted on about overruns' AND at that time they STATED on their map that the stretch between Cann Street and The Crescent would be one-way until 6th June. Well 12 days later it is still one-way. Hide the map, hide the overrun - good idea. Just one question Gizmo, are you a mere God or are you higher than that and work in local council?

By the looks of your comments and the way you are ranting on you must work for SCC and as such you should be telling us who you are so we can all aim our rightly barbed opinions at someone. Perhaps as you seem to know so much you could use some of that knowledge to schedule things a little better or get your backside down to Priory Bridge Rd and put that ranting to good use by getting the lazy oafs down there to work faster.

My business is in the middle of all this and so what if I lose trade for the day if this brilliant charity benefits from it. Taunton feels alive for once in its sorry life.

There is a sign at the top of Paul Street stating "The A38 eastbound will be closed from 02/06/2014 for 8 weeks". It is still closed eastbound all the way from Cann Street. This means that the work will not be completed until early August at the earliest. Why they need to take 8 weeks to do such a short stretch of road is beyond me, but that's Wessex Water for you.

Well please click the following link to find out the true details regarding Wessex Works: -

http://www1.somerset
.gov.uk/roads/works.
asp?Town=Taunton&Typ
e=%25&Contractor=%25
&Search=Search

I check these details regularly as part of my commute around the south west area and the dates stated of completion by July 29th under the Wessex Water sections have never been changed.

maybe you need to go to the correct website next time or maybe just Specsavers

Oh and by the way I am a legal highways consultant, which is none of your business anyway.

I suspect you wont tell us your job at all!

For your information, I did not go to a website, I wrote the information as stated on a board at the top of Paul Street, just up from the library. "The A38 eastbound will be closed from 02/06/2014 for 8 weeks". Okay this could end on 29th July - when the peak holiday season will be in full swing. The town was gridlocked this morning at 9.30 am so it won't get any better. For your information I am retired and live in Taunton and visit the town centre regularly - on foot as I do not live very far from the town centre. heather147

........ and for your information 'even more clever clogs than I am', until recently I regularly checked the Wessex Water Taunton road closures website before I 'spurted on about overruns' AND at that time they STATED on their map that the stretch between Cann Street and The Crescent would be one-way until 6th June. Well 12 days later it is still one-way. Hide the map, hide the overrun - good idea. Just one question Gizmo, are you a mere God or are you higher than that and work in local council?
There is a sign at the top of Paul Street stating "The A38 eastbound will be closed from 02/06/2014 for 8 weeks". It is still closed eastbound all the way from Cann Street. This means that the work will not be completed until early August at the earliest. Why they need to take 8 weeks to do such a short stretch of road is beyond me, but that's Wessex Water for you.

I check these details regularly as part of my commute around the south west area and the dates stated of completion by July 29th under the Wessex Water sections have never been changed.

maybe you need to go to the correct website next time or maybe just Specsavers

Oh and by the way I am a legal highways consultant, which is none of your business anyway.

I suspect you wont tell us your job at all!

Goodbye and please take care driving as it is tough out there.
You say you are employed as a Legal Highway Consultant, well I for one wouldn't.t employ you as your condescending attitude stinks but that's probably a requirement for the position and could be a major reason the roads are in such a mess. Well done you imbecile.

Really wish people would stop being so negative. This was a CHARITY event. It's one day in your life that you can't drive down a road. Stop using this story as an excuse to yap about roadworks from Wessex Water, it's nothing to do with it!

I wasn't at the gig but could hear it very clearly from my house by the train station - a 2 hour set and he sounded great from what I could hear. I hope everyone who went had a good night and well done for raising so much money for a good cause.

Well to be honest and that is where i have to come from in the legal profession, if someone has a 'pop' at anyone for which I factually know is wrong I feel an obligation to point out their errors and mistakes and try and assist them by informing them of FACTS. The original post was basically having a go at the local authorities, who I work with and against a lot of the time in courts. The person was completely and factually incorrect and rather than 'council' bashing which is something nationally done now (led mainly by central government) I felt a need to defend a financially underfunded 'minority' organisation. With regards to Wessex Water well I have no real feelings at all for them, but we all know how high the water rates are now and to my mind privatising an organisation that is as essential as water supply was at best ill conceived.

By the looks of your comments and the way you are ranting on you must work for SCC and as such you should be telling us who you are so we can all aim our rightly barbed opinions at someone. Perhaps as you seem to know so much you could use some of that knowledge to schedule things a little better or get your backside down to Priory Bridge Rd and put that ranting to good use by getting the lazy oafs down there to work faster.
For such a misguided individual it isn't really worthy of a response.
