ROADWORKS at a busy Spalding junction are causing long delays for motorists.
Woolram Wygate has been closed all week and temporary traffic lights have been put up at its junction with Pinchbeck Road while electrical and traffic signal cables are laid on behalf of Central Networks in preparation for junction improvements in a few months.
Traffic has been reduced to a single lane through the traffic lights, resulting in long queues.
The junction is already a traffic hotspot, with queues of cars heading towards town sometimes stretching as far back as the Johnson Community Hospital or even the Enterprise Way turn-off.
John Kidrowicz, bar manager at The Royal Mail Cart, which is close to the junction, said: “It’s a bit of a nightmare, particularly for ambulances trying to get through, as there is a lot of traffic waiting to get through the lights.
“I’ve had a couple of staff who have been late getting into work as a result, but other than that, fortunately it has not had too much impact on us here.”
Woolram Wygate is expected to reopen tomorrow (Friday), although traffic lights could remain for a while longer.
