Disruption as Tollbar roundabout work continues
Drivers can expect more disruption from today as one of Lincolnshire’s main roads is closed for further work on Tollbar roundabout.
The six month project is nearing the end, with traffic management required early in the new year to allow for final finishing of the splitter islands, resurfacing and new lining to be set out.
Starting today (Monday) for up to three weeks, day-time peak hours, between 9.30am – 2.30pm: Station Road east and west will be closed and the A16 under two-way lights to allow splitter islands to be reinstated and central island works.
Pedestrian access to Toll Bar Academy will be maintained.
These closures will be the same as the ones from early on in the project.
From Monday 11th of January to Friday 15 January, overnight works between 7.30pm and 5.30am: two-way lights on Station Road (west) to allow footway works nearest the Toll Bar Academy entrance to be completed.
This closure is in addition to the day-time closure stated above.
Monday 18 January for up to two weeks, night works between 7.30pm and 5.30am: Closure of each roundabout arm and the roundabout itself to allow for resurfacing and road markings to be reinstated.
Cabinet member for transport and the environment, Cllr Stewart Swinburn, welcomed the programme’s final stages by saying:
“I appreciate it has caused inconvenience, but am also pleased with the way the work has kept on schedule in these difficult times”.
“I welcome it entering its final stages and, like everybody else, will be pleased to see it completed early in the New Year”.
