Road works near completion

Have your say

Residents in Bourne are switching on to safer power following a £110,000 scheme to put overhead lines underground.

Western Power Distribution began laying underground cables along Willoughby Road in January and the work is due to be completed next week.

The work covers a 1km stretch from the junction with Cherry Holt Road and Austerby Road and the new underground cabling will serve 80 properties.

A spokesman said: “The new cables are safer and, because they are underground, improve the look of the area.

“Residents seem pleased with what we have done and there has been little disruption due to most of the work being carried out on the pavement.”

Temporary traffic lights will be in place next week opposite Willoughby Road in Cherry Holt Road for Harlaxton Engineering to make the connection after running cabling to a solar farm in Spalding Road.

There will be a partial reduction of the road, but it will not be closed.

In Spalding, Lincolnshire County Council highways department has closed Edward Road, where a pavement is being resurfaced. This work is due to be completed on Tuesday.
