Motorists are starting to get a feel for the scale of the work being completed as part of the Grantham Southern Relief Road, now that they are being diverted onto the new B1174 roundabout for the first time.

After Easter vehicles travelling along the B1174 were diverted onto the roundabout via the northern access lane, in order to allow work to take place on the second half of this access point, as well as the dismantling of the existing carriageway which will no longer be needed when this first phase of work is completed.

Elsewhere, Lincolnshire County Council confirm that the work remains on track, with the majority of surfacing being completed across the site, and just the final layer left to complete.

Most of the kerbing work has also been completed, banks have been prepared for top soiling, and the area around the deep drainage works has been reinstated ready for surfacing next month.

* How will the works affect my journey?

There are currently temporary traffic lights on the B1174. Traffic travelling on the B1174 is being diverted onto part of the new roundabout to allow construction of the second half of this northern tie-in.

When approaching the site from the north (Grantham) the left lane is for traffic travelling to Tollemache Road North, A1 and Little Ponton. The right lane is for access to Evans Grantham Caravans and Halshaw Ford only. Access to Vertu Honda is still via Tollemache Road
