Big hold ups for A52 traffic

Big delays are expected for commuter traffic when roadworks with convoys and a four-day road closure hit the A52 on the Bicker Bar approach to Boston later this month.

Lincolnshire County Council is resurfacing the road between Station Road and Boston Road from March 18 to April 5.

Work will go on between 7am-8pm daily and then the road will close completely between Kirton Holme Road and Fenhouse Drove from April 2-5.

County highways principal engineer Arthur Pearson said: “We may need to keep our traffic lights in place on some nights to keep motorists and our workforce safe.

“This traffic management will be removed for the weekends and the bank holiday.”

Two-way traffic lights will be put up and motorists will be guided through the roadworks by convoy vehicles.

Diversions during the road closure are:

• Motorists going east towards Boston will go from the A52/A17 Bicker Bar roundabout along the A17 to the A17/A16 Alarkirk roundabout and then along the A16 to Boston

• Motorists travelling west from Boston will go along the town’s Sleaford Road and the A1121 Boardsides to the A17 and then south to the A52/A17 Bicker Bar roundabout
