Somerset council wants bids for new Taunton road

Construction companies are being asked to bid to build three bridges and a new road in Taunton.

The county council has issued a tender for the road which would connect the town centre Firepool development at the old cattle market to the M5.

It also wants the contractor to build a new bridge over the River Tone, and replace road and footbridges.

Work would start in April 2012 once a contractor is picked and should be finished by September 2013.
