A16 at Spalding to close as part of roundabout improvement works

County bosses have announced that the A16 will close as part of an ongoing scheme to improve a major town roundabout.

The Springfields roundabout in Spalding will be closed for a series of nights in the coming weeks while new road surfacing is laid in the latest stage of the scheme.

Additional lanes are being added onto the roundabout as part of an ongoing £20 million Levelling Up improvement project, which is being undertaken by Lincolnshire County Council.

The A16 South will be closed on Tuesday, May 28, for three evenings while the A16 north is shut on Friday, May 31, Monday, June 3, and Tuesday June 4.

Coun Richard Davies, executive member for highways, said: “We’re now at the stage in the scheme where we’re ready to start laying new road surfacing as part of our Springfield Roundabout improvements – but, to safely carry out this work, we need to close off the sections of roundabout where we’ll be working.

“We’ll be carrying these works out as efficiently as possible to ensure the closures aren’t in place any longer than they need to be. We’ve also scheduled them for nights to help keep disruption down.

“I want to thank everyone in advance for their patience.”

The closures will run from 7pm to 6am.

The A16 north works run from Springfields Roundabout to A16/B1180 Pinchbeck Roundabout. Motorists will be diverted along the A16 to Sutterton Roundabout to take the A17 to Peppermint Roundabout at Holbeach and then head along the A151 to Springfields Roundabout.

While the A16 South covers Springfield Roundabout to A16/B1165 Low Fulney Roundabout. The diversion runs from Applegreen Roundabout to the A1175 Market Deeping Roundabout to A15 to Bourne (Cherry Holt Road) to take the A151 to Springfields.

County bosses have warned that additional closures will be required in June and earlier this year advised that the work to Springfields roundabout will be taking longer than expected.

Work started earlier this week on a major overhaul of the Greencell roundabout on the A16.
