Road closures and diversions for the Lincolnshire Show

Lincolnshire County Council detailed these road closures and diversions for the show. Please note they are subject to change depending on traffic levels.

The A15 from Lincoln to Caenby Corner will be closed to through-traffic and used as access to the show only.

In the mornings, there will be two lanes flowing northbound off the bypass into the showground. In the afternoons, this will reverse to allow traffic to flow southwards towards the bypass.

From Caenby Corner, the A15 south-bound is used for show traffic only and all other traffic is diverted via the A631 and the A46.

The left lane of the dual carriageway on the approach to Riseholme roundabout will be coned off for show traffic only. The other lane will be for all other traffic.

There will also be manual traffic control by an accredited traffic management company on various roundabouts to maintain traffic flow as much as possible and minimise queuing.

The A1500, between the B1398 and the A15, will be closed and traffic will be managed within this section. Both lanes will be used for inbound traffic in the morning and reversed in the afternoon.

There will be a set of manually-controlled temporary traffic signals on the B1398 to allow entrance to the showground at that point, and maintain the flow of through traffic.

Excitement mounts as the second day of the Lincolnshire Show gets underway.

Honorary Show Director, Richard Collect, said:

“I always think every year is our best year. Yesterday was a great day and everyone really enjoyed it. We always focus on the agriculture side and it’s great to bring the county’s best successes to light.”

Lots of great things to see in the Co-op tent, including cake sampling, free blood tests, a cafe and a pop-up shop for your kitchen essentials
