Works to refurbish the pelican crossing on London Road near Sainsbury’s will start on Tuesday, September 1, lasting two weeks.

The existing pedestrian crossing has been in place for over 20 years and has reached the end of its operational lifespan.

To complete the works safely the section of London Road in the vicinity of the crossing will be reduced to one lane in both directions for the majority of the works.

Towards the end of the works, temporary four-way traffic lights will be in place at the junction with Sainsbury’s.

Access to local businesses will be maintained throughout the works for pedestrians and motorists.

Mark Heaton, area highways manager, said: “We continue to enhance road surfaces, crossings, traffic lights and the highways infrastructure in Grantham – so far this year we have invested over £250,000 on improvements.

“We will install this new crossing while causing as little disruption as possible, so we are keeping lanes open in both directions to help keep traffic flowing freely.

“There will still be some delays for motorists so please allow extra time for your journey or choose an alternative route.”
