Measures to improve safety at the top of a busy road could be introduced next year.

North Somerset Council's highways team could make improvements at the top of Wraxall Hill with the junction with the B3128 as part of its works programme for 2020-21.

The scheme will cut back vegetation on the visibility splays and install anti-skid surfaces on the approaches and also for vehicles pulling out.

The new surface will improve traction between vehicles and the road surface.

Highways previously considered redesigning the junction, but it would have required considerable land and carriageway reconstruction.

Wraxall and Failand Parish Council has suggested the 40mph speed limit on the B3128 be extended to include this junction.

Earlier this year, the parish council installed a warning sign near Wraxall Primary School, on the east side of the hill.
