Highways England are currently consulting on the proposal to upgrade the A303 between

Sparkford and Ilchester to a dual carriageway.  Here is the consultation brochure and below is the link to the on-line consultation.


This statutory consultation is your Town or Parishes opportunity to express your views on the design of the proposed scheme in advance of the application for a Development Consent Order (DCO) to authorise construction of the project.

Businesses, local authorities, public bodies, road users and the communities and neighbouring areas can play an important part in the development of the scheme design. Your feedback is therefore essential to this consultation as it will enable Highways England to improve the scheme before they start the planning process.

The consultation closes on 9th March 2018.
