The bridge over the river Witham on the A52 through Grantham has reopened following three weeks of repair work.

The Bridge End Road structure was closed on March 25. Workmen have waterproofed the deck of the bridge. This involved taking up the road surface, cleaning the concrete deck and then spraying it with a liquid resin compound before resurfacing the road.

Residents complained about heavy goods vehicles turning around near their homes after missing or ignoring the ‘road closed’ signs. One woman complained to the Journal after her car was damaged by a lorry turning round in Bridge End Road.
