The South West Regional Assembly has ignored the recommendations of a Highways Agency report and voted to widen the A303 and A30 through the Blackdown Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The Assembly voted 42 to 41 in favour of the Blackdown Hills widening over the option to make improvements to the A358 from Ilminster to Taunton.
