A main road leading into Cheddar will be closed for three weeks while work is carried out on a housing development.
Upper New Road will be closed from October 2 while Bloor Homes – which is currently building 90 homes off the main road – improve the sewage system leading to the development.
Diversions will be in place to deal with the road closure and people will be based on the site to handle traffic.
A Bloor Homes spokesman said: “We aim to keep disruption to a minimum and will be employing a traffic management system.
“We apologise for any inconvenience caused while this necessary work takes place.”
Sedgemoor District Council approved the application in January but told the developer it must increase the number of affordable homes from 23 to 36 and pay for a new signal crossing.
Bloor Homes was also told to install a cycle ramp on the Strawberry Line.
