Hinkley C Connection Bore Holes
Excerpt from Email to Parish Clerk .... we have rescheduled some of the ground investigation surveys that were due to take place back in March/April.
Starting next week, our contractors will carry out two different types of surveys; boreholes and trial pits.  As mentioned below, these are both detailed investigations of the soil and will tell us more about the ground conditions on the route and inform the detailed design of the 400kV overhead line and the temporary access roads for construction. They will also enable us and our contractors to produce more accurate forecasts and help to drive value for UK consumers, who will pay for the project through their energy bills.
We will be carrying out surveys at 14 locations in the south of the route, three of which will be in your parish just north of Woolavington village.  All being well, the surveys will take approximately five weeks to complete, but we will only be at each borehole location for two to three days, and at each trial pit location for approximately one day.

East Huntspill/Bason Bridge
HGV weight restriction
The reason that East Huntspill and Woolavington require a weight restriction is to stop the B3141 being used as a “rat run” by heavy goods vehicles.
The permanent HGV weight restriction is due to be implemented by SCC in the next few months.
The weight restriction will be based on the experimental order and a list of property exemptions.
