A180 roadworks: When can we expect them to end?
Amid the confusion and frustration that has followed the ongoing A180 roadworks there is a light at the end of the tunnel.
The £2m scheme will see around two miles of barrier installed as well as drainage repairs and upgrades to road signs between the Stallingborough Interchange and Pyewipe Roundabout.
The agency has previously shared that the works are expected to end in March, a little over a month away.
However, they have not confirmed a final completion date and the time line has now been moved to March or April.
The temporary 40 mph speed limit will also remain in place until the works are completed.
Works are being carried out overnight six days a week so not to disturb motorists.
So far, nearly 1900m – roughly 40 per cent – of the old barrier has been removed. Just over 1100m of the new barrier has been installed.
Highways England shared that they still have a few more weeks worth of works to carry out on the eastbound carriageway before work starts on the westbound.
Repairs have also been made to the drainage network, with new road signs also being installed down the motorway.
National Highways project Manager Steve Bishop said: “Our work on this vital safety upgrade of the safety barriers on the A180 is progressing well and on schedule to complete by March/April, weather permitting.
“We are working overnight, six nights a week and so far have removed nearly 1900m (around 40 per cent) of the existing barrier and installed just over 1100m of new barrier. In addition, we have been carrying our repairs to the drainage network and we are well advanced in the programme of work to renew a significant number of road signs along the route.
“We have a few more weeks of work on the eastbound carriageway before we switch over to the westbound.
“The temporary speed limit, which is in place for the safety of road users and our workforce, will remain in place until the work is completed.
“We would like to thank road users for their continued patience while we carry out this important safety work.”
