Somerset County Council Traffic and Travel Website -


Somerset County Council has recently launched a new traffic and travel website –

This runs alongside the @TravelSomerset Twitter account, which provides live updates from the Council's traffic control team.

 The aim of Travel Somerset is to improve how we tell people about what's happening on the roads in Somerset – from planned roadworks and public events to unplanned incidents, accidents or congestion.


The website provides updates 24/7 and also has a searchable map showing current and future roadworks. You can sign up for travel alerts or subscribe for emails about roadworks in an area of your choice.


The new website also has information about public transport, cycling and walking, and will be developed and improved over time.

Waste and recycling collections severe weather guide


In severe weather, recycling and refuse crews will try to keep collecting if it is safe.


If your collection is missed, please be patient; we will try to return once conditions improve, working late and on Saturdays to catch up. Please put out recycling and refuse by 7am for the next three working days; if we have not been back by then, please take it back in and put out by 7am on your next usual collection day.


If your collection is delayed, extra amounts of regular waste will be accepted: please put rubbish in black sacks, recycling in carrier bags and food in covered buckets or in black sacks with other rubbish.


In very bad conditions, we may have to suspend collecting garden and bulky waste to give priority to the main services. If our clinical waste service is interrupted, we will get back as soon as possible.

Somerset County Council Cabinet Member for Highways, Cllr Harvey Siggs, said: "I want us all to tackle winter together in Somerset, and on top of all the other services we provide, one way the Council can contribute to this collective effort is to pass on important information.


"The Twitter account means we can let everyone know when the main roads are being salted and share our forecasts to help residents and businesses prepare. This might be by planning journeys or safely spreading salt around where they live and work.


"The public need to be well informed about our winter maintenance service and feel like ...
