Junction 25, M5 at Henlade

Junction 25 is the main access point to Taunton and also provides a critical link to the second strategic route into the South West, the A303 via the A358.

The scheme will increase the capacity of this vital link to improve traffic flow, ease peak hour congestion and unlock land for employment.

The proposed scheme involves full signalisation and enlarging of the roundabout, improved signs on approach to the junction, widening of the eastern exit, a new roundabout to access the proposed Strategic Employment Site, and improved pedestrian and cycling facilities.
