Work to start on next phase of Spalding Relief Road
Work is set to start on the next phase of the Spalding Relief Road project tomorrow.
Contractors will begin clearing vegetation along the B1356 Spalding Road over the next three weeks.
Although most of the work will be carried out away from main roads, daytime temporary traffic signals will be in place on the B1356 Spalding Road for five days from Tuesday 10 to Friday 13 November, as well as Monday 16 November (subject to suitable weather).
Lincolnshire County Council and South Holland District Council are working on the plans to create the 6.5km road to link the A1175 and A16 to the south and east of Spalding, to the B1356 to the north, via the B1172 Spalding Common.
Coun Richard Davies, executive member for highways, said: "With bird-nesting season complete, Eurovia can now make a start on removing trees and other growth along the route of the road, including along the B1356 Spalding Road and in the fields along the route of relief road's north section.
"There may be some disruption while the temporary traffic signals are in place, so we are asking people to allow extra time for their journeys.
"The team is also hard at work building the project's permanent site compound off of Enterprise Way and will be making a start with building temporary haul roads for construction traffic soon – all ahead of starting main works."
Archaeologists have been working on the site and have uncovered remains of Romans transporting salt during excavations.
