Town Council’s anger over Welshmill Lane resurfacing

Story posted on

Despite their best efforts over the past six weeks Frome Town Council say that Somerset County Council started going ahead with the Welshmill Lane resurfacing last week.

Frome Town Council said, “This means the closure of Welshmill Lane will clash with the closure of  Market Place and cause significant disruption to road users, as well as annoyance to the community in the town.  The works will go on until Friday 31st July.”

 Cllr Anne Hills, leader of the town council said, “We are deeply disappointed about the timing of the resurfacing work in Welshmill Lane.  The  council has known for some time that the Market Place is closed to through traffic and that many road-users would divert via Welshmill Lane. I can only apologise for the expected inconvenience.

 “The county council, despite several warnings, decided to go ahead regardless of the impact on the people of Frome. In my view this shows a complete disregard for our community and the chaos  this is likely to cause. It would have been so easy to push this work back.”

 Complaints should be made to leader of Somerset county council, Councillor David Fothergill at DJAFothergill@somerset.gov.uk
