Squibbers Way Opening Event

An event to celebrate the opening of Bridgwater’s new Squibbers Way has been rescheduled to avoid clashing with the General Election.

Somerset County Council is working with main contractor Whitemountain and Bridgwater Carnival to organise a spectacular mini squibbing display to mark the opening of the new link road.

This was due to take place on Wednesday 11 December – however, it will now be rearranged for the evening of Monday 16 December, after the election.

The new date is to ensure Somerset County Council complies with the laws and guidance that restrict local authority publicity and consultation in the run-up to elections.

Further details about the road opening will be publicised in due course.

Squibbers Way is the new £18.4m road linking Marsh Lane to Parrett Way and was named by the people of Bridgwater following a public vote. The project was previously referred to as the Colley Lane Southern Access Road and will help ease congestion along Taunton Road and Broadway as well as opening up brownfield land for development.
