Important notice for Castle Cary Station Customers
First Great Western would like to inform customers that a full road closure will come into force on Monday 8 July to Sunday 17 November 2013 between Ansford Bridge and Castle Cary Railway Station. Between 18 November and 29 November the road will run with only one lane open so delays likely.
The road will be closed to allow for vital strengthening work to Ansford Bridge to be carried out by Network Rail and customers are advised to allow additional time if driving to Castle Cary Station.
Network Rail’s community relations manager for Wales and West Robin Basu said: “This is obviously going to have a big impact on local residents, businesses and passengers, who will have to go on a long diversion in order to reach the station.” “We’d like to apologise in advance for the disruption this work is likely to cause.”
Advance warning notices will be placed on site and posters will go up around Castle Cary Railway Station informing rail users about the works, which are scheduled for completion by the end of November 2013.
Additionally, Network Rail will be writing to local residents and Ansford parish councillors, as well as contacting businesses who will be affected by the works.
Separate diversion routes will be put in place for both car and heavy goods vehicles to ensure disruption is kept to a minimum. Network Rail has stated that they will be providing Somerset County Council and other parties with weekly updates on progress. People with additional questions or concerns should contact Network Rail’s 24-hour national helpline on 08457 11 41 41 or email us.
