Road improvements that started last month on the A52 and A17 are well under way, with some sections already completed.

A17 and the A52 at Bicker Bar roundabout: Reconstruction and resurfacing of the carriageway which started on September 22 is expected to be completed on Friday. There is currently a road closure on the A52 between Golden Grove and Fendike Lane between 8pm and 6am. The A17 remains open under temporary traffic lights between 8pm to 6am.

This essential maintenance work will ensure the roads will be in good condition for many years to come

A17/A1101 Long Sutton Roundabout: Reconstruction and resurfacing of the carriageway on the A17 and roundabout starts on Monday (October 12) and should be completed by Wednesday, October 21. There will be no weekend working.

To allow the work to go ahead safely there will be a road closure of the B1359 leg between the roundabout and the access road to the service station. Both A17 legs near the roundabout, and the A1101 leg will remain open under temporary traffic lights between 8pm and 6am.

Motorists are advised to allow extra time for their journeys on the dates affected, particularly if travelling between 8pm and 6am while works are under way.

Resurfacing and drainage works on the A17 at Swineshead Bridge have now been completed.

Andy Wharff, area highways manager, said: “We recognise that these are busy, well used roads, therefore all works are taking place overnight between 8pm and 6am to keep disruption and delays to a minimum. Weekend working is being avoided to ensure residents and other road users are inconvenienced as little as possible.

“This essential maintenance work will ensure the roads will be in good condition for many years to come, avoiding the need to make frequent return visits in future to carry out repairs.”
