Temporary fix due tomorrow to sort dangerous dip in Boston Road, Holbeach

Highways officers will carry out a temporary fix to a dangerous dip in Boston Road in Holbeach tomorrow - with the prospect of a full repair also on the horizon.

The work will make the road surface level in order to remove the immediate risk to motorists.

Tracey Carter, a Holbeach district councillor who was also recently elected to the county council, has lobbied for the work to be carried out.

She said: "This is to make it safe for now and I feel that needs to be done.

"We all know its not going to solve it - but it will stop the risk of damage and to me that's the immediate priority."

A meeting will then be held on Tuesday with specialists who can carry out the full ground stabilisation job that is needed to sort the matter in the long term. The road will also be inspected every couple of days to keep a close eye on its condition.

Coun Carter praised highways for listening to her concerns and acting on them.

While there's not yet a time scale available for the full stabilisation job, Coun Carter added: "It's not a case of if, it's a case of when."

New signs were put up next to the dip yesterday after reports that a motorist had damaged the wheels on their vehicle. The condition of the problem spot - near to Holbeach Primary School - is said to have worsened in recent days.

The road had previously been shut for months after a sink hole appeared.
