Roadworks will be carried out over three South Holland roundabouts in June.

Lincolnshire County Council will be carrying out improvements on roundabouts in Spalding, Crowland and Cowbit.

The county council had started a programme of works on roundabouts last year but had to cut short this due to bad weather.

Works on Spalding roundabouts will be taking place from Monday, June 13, to Thursday, June 23 (night time closures). Cowbit works are due to be held on Friday, June 24, Monday, June 27, and Tuesday, June 28 with Crowland works planned for Wednesday, June 29, and Thursday, June 30 (night time closures).

Coun Richard Davies, executive member for highways, said: "Last year, we repaired several sections of the A16 that were wearing out. However, we had to cut our works at Spalding Roundabout short due to cold, wet weather.

"As a result, the team will be coming back next month to finish the job.

“We’ve also found that some of the new road surfacing and kerbs at the Cowbit and Crowland roundabouts don’t meet the stringent quality requirements we specified in our designs, so our contractor will be fixing these sections as part of our contract with them.

"These works will no doubt cause some disruption, but we'll be doing everything we can to keep this to a minimum including carrying most of the works out overnight when there are fewer people on the roads.

"I want to thank everyone in advance for bearing with us while we carry out these essential repairs to the A16 near Spalding, Cowbit and Crowland."
