Spalding and Kirton A16 work on track for 2023

More news, no ads


Improvements on and around the A16 are on track to be carried out in 2023.

A £20million programme of works won support from the Government’s Levelling Up Fund last year.

The Free Press understands feasibility studies into the improvements have now taken place for the proposals.

It is not thought that this work has resulted in any changes to the schemes outlined last year by the county council.

The work will include:

  • Improvements to the A16/A151 ‘McDonald’s roundabout’ with wider lanes, a longer two-lane approach and better crossings;
  • Better connections for cyclists and pedestrians to Springfields around the A151 Camel Gate junction;
  • Widening the lanes and approaches to the B1180 Warden Tree Lane roundabout;
  • Dual carriageway on the A16 in and out of Kirton;
  • Extra signals and works to the approaches of the Station Road/A16 junction in Kirton.

The next stage is for detailed design work to be carried out. A spokesman said this was ‘with a view to starting works in 2023’.

District council leader Gary Porter said he was pleased to hear of the progress made by the county council on this work given the A16’s importance to businesses and residents.

He added: “Any delay on the road system is expensive - particularly given the cost of diesel.”
