A section of the A361 near Glastonbury could remain closed until next week because floodwater from the drainage ditches on either side of the A361 has flowed onto the road, according to the Council.
The road is impassable between East Lyng (junction of Cutts Road) and the Somerset Levels Basket and Craft Centre at Burrowbridge because of flooding. Motorists have been advised not to try to drive through this section as the depth of water is not known and the water is still rising. County council officials said the road would remain closed until at least Saturday and may not reopen until Tuesday 8th May.
Motorists can use either side of the flooded section of road and it is accessible for residents and local businesses. You can still travel from Taunton to East Lyng and from the Pipers Inn at Ashcott to Burrowbridge.
The A372 between Othery and Langport is also being monitored and may also have to be closed if the water level continues to rise across the moor.
