Highways Agency

The A303 in Somerset is closed in both directions near Yeovil between the A37 / A372 (Podimore) and the A3088 (Tintinhull) due to flooding.

The Highways Agency, Avon and Somerset Police and Somerset County Council are working to re-open the route as soon as it is safe to do so and traffic travelling from Devon and Cornwall towards London is advised to use the M5 northbound and M4 eastbound. Road users travelling from London and the South East are advised to use the M4 westbound and M5 southbound.


Westbound traffic on the A303 will be diverted on to the A37 to Shepton Mallet, the A361 to Glastonbury then the A39 to the M5 at Junction 23 and west to Junction 25 to the A358 at Taunton to rejoin the A303 at Ilminster. The same route applies in reverse to eastbound traffic.
