A158 Wragby roadworks almost complete

Nearly there: The 12-week repair and improvement works on a crossroad in Wragby are finally coming to an end.

Repair work on the A158 at Wragby will be completed today, on July 15, according to Lincolnshire County Council.

As previously reported, repair works to a section of the A158 and B1202 crossroads at Wragby were being held over a 12-week period.

Lincolnshire Country Council said the road had “reached the end of its working life” due to recent icy winters.

Traffic light signals were also replaced and the existing pedestrian crossing replaced with a more modern system.

Three new pedestrian crossings have been installed, and the footpath that runs alongside the Marketplace and A158 will be widened for accessibility.

Today, final improvements are being made to an adjacent footpath, which require temporary traffic lights until 3pm.

Once this is complete the A158 and B1202 will be fully open as normal. Now the works are complete, the council will not have to return to the site for another 20 years.

The £350,000 scheme has been completed slightly ahead of schedule.
