Motorists and businesses using major roads in south Somerset have said improvements to the A303 will benefit the area.

Two surveys to help bolster a pitch to Government for a multi-million upgrade of Somerset roads received more than 1,300 replies.

Somerset County Council cabinet member for economic development David Hall said: "I was delighted with the level of interest in the two surveys. Such a large response to both will give us invaluable evidence when we take the case for funding."

The responses will be analysed and form part of the business case for dualling single carriageway stretches of the A303 and A358.

Somerset County Council is leading a consortium of South West local authorities, the Highways Agency and the Heart of the South West Local Enterprise Partnership in preparing the business case.

Have you or a loved one been injured in a crash on the A303 in our area? Do you think more can be done to make the road safer?

The Western Gazette is interested to hear your views on the road and how it has affected your life.
