A 200 metre long pontoon footpath has been installed to help flood stricken villagers get to work and school.
Somerset County Council is paying for the footbridge which stretches along part of the flooded Langport to Muchelney road.
Deputy Leader of Somerset County Council, Cllr David Hall, said: “We are funding this pontoon along with the humanitarian boat service so the community in this area is not isolated and can go about their normal lives.
