Pinchbeck Road is to close again after roadworks in May.
Pinchbeck Road is to close again after roadworks in May.

Part of Spalding’s Pinchbeck Road is due to close for four days from tomorrow (Tuesday) for roadworks.

The section involved is between West Elloe Avenue and King’s Road, which closed in May after a hole opened up due to a collapsed sewer. Access to businesses will be maintained.

A full road closure of the A151 link road at Holbeach started today and is expected to last for around six weeks as roadworks continue at Peppermint Junction.

Ten night-time closures of the A17 from 7pm to 6am start today.

Diversion routes have been signed.

• The Spalding work will involve county highways looking at a dip in the road surface close to the junction of King’s Road.

The local highways manager said: “Anglian Water had to carry out emergency works at the other end of Pinchbeck Road a few weeks ago after a section of the carriageway collapsed because of problems with the sewers. They also investigated the dip near King’s Road, but they have said that the sewer there appears to be fine, so at this stage it is unclear what is causing the issue.

“Our local team has previously carried out some temporary repairs to reduce the severity of this dip, and we’ll be returning on July 25 and 26 to further investigate the cause before completing a permanent repair.

“To ensure the safety of motorists and the team working on site, we’ll be closing this section of carriageway while we excavate parts of the road to carry out our investigation. We apologise for any inconvenience this will cause and ask for your patience during these works.”
