Roadworks to take place on A17 at Holbeach

Roadworks on A17 which are due to last a month will be starting this weekend.

Works will take place at weekends and during evenings from 6pm to midnight and the road will remain open throughout, with stop and go boards and convoy working to manage traffic.

Karen Cassar, assistant director for highways, said: "Surface dressing helps us to extend the life of our roads by around 10 years, pushing back the need for more extensive resurfacing schemes.

"Here on the A17, one of the major routes through the county, we're hoping to keep the disruption of these works to a minimum; we're working evenings and weekends when the road is less busy, and keeping it open to avoid any lengthy diversions.

"Over the weekend of the 8 and 9 May is when we'll be doing the bulk of the surface dressing itself, with mostly prep work and finishing-off happening before and after. That's the biggest part of the job and something to be aware of – and allow a bit of extra time for – if you're planning to travel that stretch of the A17 on that weekend.

"Works like this help us keep potholes at bay, so thank you for bearing with us whilst we maintain your roads."

Cross Keys Bridge in Sutton Bridge will be closed for tonight for road works.
