Page 1 of 13

Closes 22 Nov 2021


This questionnaire has been designed to help you share your views on our proposals for the A358 Taunton to Southfields Dualling Scheme.  

It is important that you complete this questionnaire (or provide your feedback using the other methods outlined in the consultation brochure) by 23.59 on Monday 22 November 2021.

The questions are broken down into eight topic areas.

  • About you
  • Section 1 – M5 Junction 25 to Mattock’s Tree Green junction
  • Section 2 - Mattock’s Tree Green junction to Griffin Lane
  • Section 3 – Griffin Lane to Ashill junction
  • Section 4 - Ashill junction and Southfields roundabout
  • Improvements for walkers, cyclists and horse riders including disabled users
  • Planning ahead to construction
  • The environment
  • General comments

We have produced a set of consultation documents to explain the project and the upgrades we are proposing to make. These include

  • a consultation booklet
  • a Preliminary Environmental Information Report
  • a Non-Technical Summary of the Preliminary Environmental Information Report.  

It’s important to look at these documents before completing the questionnaire.

How your feedback will be used

We will take time to consider your feedback when making further refinements to our proposed design and developing our planned mitigation measures.

We will set out a summary of the responses that you have given us in a consultation report, with details on how your feedback has shaped and influenced the proposals.

This report will form part of our Development Consent Order (DCO) application and will be published following submission of our application. We expect to submit our DCO application in 2022 and, if it is granted, start work in 2024/25.

To start the questionnaire, please press continue.
