Peninsula Transport has welcomed the opening of the Nexus link road, part of a multi-million project to upgrade Taunton’s M5 Junction 25.

The link road is the next key stage in the £19.2m improvement of Junction 25, which will deliver significantly increased capacity when finished next summer.  

The road now carries A358 traffic and is a key gateway to Taunton, and the M5, and will serve the new Nexus 25 industrial estate.

The Junction 25 project still has some way to go before completion, but the link road opening is a huge step forward.
