Olympic Torch disruption

Have your say

RESIDENTS are being urged to prepare for ‘significant disruption’ when the Olympic Torch visits Grantham.

The torch will pass through Grantham on the afternoon of Thursday, June 28, and many hundreds of people are expected to line the streets to get a glimpse of the famous flame.

Mike Nicholls, highways network manager, said: “Businesses, schools, transport and many other services across the county will be affected, so it’s important you find out what’s happening near you.”

Mr Nicholls admitted that some disruption is inevitable, and advised people to plan alternative travel routes.

South Kesteven District Council’s website is the place to go to find out details of road closures and local events before the day.
