Work on a new £100 million development in Wyberton featuring housing, shops, restaurants and a new sports ground has got under way.
The Quadrant development off the A16 in Wyberton started on Monday with the building of a new roundabout on the A16, including a pedestrian crossing near Boston, last Monday side.
Closure of a footpath and layby on the west side of the A16, between Tytton Lane East and The Causeway, is now in place to provide access for contractors from Lincoln-based Chestnut Homes.
Coun Richard Davies, executive member for highways and transport at Lincolnshire County Council, said: “We recognise that the Quadrant is a significant new development which will bring many benefits to the community.
“Therefore, we have been working with Chestnut Homes to ensure that disruption for road users is kept to a minimum.”
A temporary speed restriction of 30mph will be in place on the A16 for the length of the works, with some weekend, overnight closures for about two weeks in September in order to complete road surfacing and markings.

During this time, temporary lights will be in place for approximately two week.
David Newton, managing director of Chestnut Homes, said: “This is the culmination of 13 years of hard work and it’s been a real journey together, but I’m absolutely delighted.”
