The second stage of a programme of highways improvements is set to begin on Monday (April 13) in Grantham.

The works will see temporary traffic lights on the A52 and B6403 East with full closures on the B1176 and B6403 West. Diversion routes will be clearly signed, with the works carried out between 7pm and 6am to minimise disruption.

Tim Mawson, Project Leader said: “We’re taking a proactive approach, and replacing these sections of road before they deteriorate. Instead of waiting for potholes and ruts to form, we’re tackling sections of road where there’s a possibility the road structure could fail completely, which would necessitate a full road reconstruction.

“Taking this planned approach is a much more effective use of the funding than repairing potholes once they form. It also avoids the risk of needing emergency road closures in future, should the roads start to deteriorate”.

The programme will be subject to weather, any unforeseen ground conditions that may be encountered and operational issues that may be beyond the control of the contractor.
