ROADWORKS in West Wick are set to cause seven months of traffic chaos near Banwell.The sewer construction works, between Churchlands Way and West Wick, will directly affect the stretch of Wolvershill Road by Stonebridge Caravan Park. Work is due to start on April 16.Contractors have reached an agreement with the owners of the park so access is maintained via one exit while work continues near the other.The work is being undertaken because of the new homes being built at West Wick. The new 350m length of pipe will be buried about a 7m underground. The Weston Mercury has already received a letter of complaint about the works which states: "We can only imagine that this decision was made by a non-Weston resident. This is going to cause traffic chaos on an already congested route to and from the M5/A370. The alternative route would take us an extra three miles and goodness knows how long in the traffic. We will also be prevented from lift sharing, which means more cars, more congestion, more pollution and much, much, much more hassle."Other roadworks at Wint Hill, starting on April 14, will close the road running from the entrance of the water plant to the junction of Castle Hill on four consecutive weekends from 8am to 5.30pm.
