Improvement works to an important junction south of Sleaford are scheduled to take place during the next year by Lincolnshire Highways.

As part of a programme of planned works, which will start this spring and end in early 2018, safety on roads across the southeast of the county will be targeted, says the authority in a statement released today (Thursday).

Among the numerous improvement and resurfacing works being undertaken throughout the year is the A52 Swaton Crossroads at a date yet to be fixed.

Detailed information about the works, including exact dates, times and diversion routes, will be available closer to the start of each individual project.

The county council highways department says a number of measures will be used to minimise disruptions throughout the works and ensure the safety of the workforce carrying out the improvements. These include coordinating overnight works; full closures to reduce the length of works; and narrowed lanes to maintain two-way traffic flows.

Ahead of the programme of improvements starting, works at Sutterton Roundabout are expected to conclude at the end of March, ultimately improving the flow of traffic at the ‘pinch point’ on the A16 and A17. These improvements include lane widening to increase traffic flow; better signage and road markings; and upgraded street lights – all of which will prepare Sutterton Roundabout for playing a key role for the vast majority of the proposed diversion routes for the upcoming improvements to southeast Lincolnshire’s road network, according to the authority.
