Grantham Journal letter: Lorry incident is not a one-off

HGV crosses the A1 at the Great Ponton junction, leaving its trailer blocking the entire southbound carriageway for several seconds.

Have your say

The shot of the lorry turning at Great Ponton (last week’s front page) is not a one-off but a regular occurrence.

It is mainly in the evening when lorries are leaving from what I know as Spittlegate Level, as there is northbound access to the A1 other than going though Grantham.

This is why the first part of the bypass should be a junction to the A 1 north at the Ponton end of the present A1 bypass.
