A358 Taunton to Southfields
ARUP AND RAMBOLL
Early works for an upgrade to the A358 between the M5 at Taunton and the Southfields roundabout on the A303 to make journeys safer, quicker and more reliable.
Taylor Woodrow Plus has been awarded this early works contract which is part of a long-term aim to create a high-quality dual carriageway link between London, the south east and the south west.
Preparatory works are well-established and include ground investigation, archaeological trial trenching and numerous environmental surveys to inform design proposals.
The project has included a statutory and supplementary consultation on the proposals ahead of submission of the scheme’s Development Consent Order application to the Planning Inspectorate.
