EDF Energy is building a new campus on the site of a former plastics factory off Bath Road, designed to accommodate up to 850 workers for Hinkley Point C. The campus will include a canteen, laundry and gym, along with one full-size and two five-a-side football pitches which the public can use. The access road to the campus is located opposite Frederick Road, and involves traffic lights and new filter lanes for the junction. A residential street in eastern Bridgwater will close permanently at one end next month as part of a project connected to construction of the Hinkley Point C power station. From early March, Frederick Road will no longer have a junction with the A39 Bath Road, with access onto the latter being “stopped up”.
