Welcome to Yeovilton Parish Council

Easier for non-motorised users to cross the A303 near Podimore.

Our listening exercise will focus on reforms to the Higher Farm Lane Overbridge. These changes, if taken forward and awarded designated funding, will require a change in legal status to ensure the Higher Farm Lane Overbridge can be used by each user group. This will ensure that horse-riders, cyclists and pedestrians can each use the bridge. We will also look at vehicular access to help us understand whether the bridge could be used by some types of vehicles, including horse-drawn carriages.

Our proposals may include mounting blocks, or the construction of specific safety barriers called parapets. They could also include changes to the surfacing to ensure the bridge can be used by each user group.
