Temporary traffic lights are planned on the B3151 in Cheddar for roadworks next week.

The multi-way lights are scheduled to be used at the junction of Lower New Road and Wedmore Road on Tuesday (October 20) and Wednesday (October 21).

They are set to be in place to enable Wessex Water to repair or replace a cover and frame.

Other roadworks in the Cheddar area that are scheduled to take place next week include:

In Axbridge, the closure of Old Church Road for urgent roof works to take place is set to remain in place until November 1, the temporary traffic lights in Orchard Road for BT to install poly ducts are due to be used until October 27, and Gigaclear's work to install fibre optic cable in Compton Lane is scheduled to be completed on Tuesday.

On Monday (October 19) Long Hill is set to be closed between Clewer and Crickham to enable Gigaclear to carry out reinstatement works, while similar work means that the B3151 between the two villages is due to be shut on Tuesday.

On Monday and Tuesday, Sand Lane is scheduled to be closed between Heath House and Sand for Bristol Water works.

In Lower Weare, multi-way temporary traffic lights are set to be in place at the junction of the A38 and Notting Hill Way from Monday to October 30 to enable Gigaclear to install fibre optic cable, while the Wales and West Utilities work to repair a gas leak in Notting Hill Way should be completed on Wednesday.

From Thursday (October 22) to October 26, temporary traffic lights are due to be in place in Front Street, Stone Allerton, so Gigaclear can work on a duct.

Finally, on Sunday (October 25) temporary traffic lights are scheduled on the A38 between Tarnock and Rooksbridge so BT can provide a new customer service and replace overhead cables.
