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.
