Grantham

This is when Grantham roadworks will be complete

Three major highways projects in Grantham are underway, with some roads being rebuilt entirely.

The first phase of work was started on Sunday, July 26 on the London Road and Wharf Road junction, these were finished on August 3.

The second project began on Monday, August 6 to replace the traffic signals at the junction of London Road and Bridge End Road – it is expected to take four weeks.

Work will also be underway on Avenue Road and Stonebridge Road from Monday, August 3 and is expected to be completed by Sunday, September 2.

Councillor Richard Davies, executive member for highways, said: “These sections of road are in need of repair, but instead of just filling in the potholes, we’re going to be completely rebuilding them.

“Similarly, the traffic lights at the junction of London Road and Bridge End Road are reaching the end of their life and need to be replaced.

“We’ve scheduled all this work for the school holidays, when there’s much less traffic about, which will help reduce the impact on motorists.

“That said, there is still likely to be some disruption. We apologise for any inconvenience caused, and would encourage people to use alternative routes where possible.”

As a result of the works, the roads will be closed and diversions are going to be in place.

The works are expected to finish in September.
