Damaged roads still closed
MORE than a dozen roads in the Somerset region remain closed, almost two months after heavy rain destroyed them.
Motorists can expect delays and detours around some of the affected roads and thoroughfares for at least the next year.
Four of the region’s 14 roads still inaccessible by sedans are state controlled roads while the remainder are council owned.
Somerset Regional Council mayor Graeme Lehmann said council is doing everything it can to fix damaged roads as soon as possible.
