A46 Lincoln bypass reopens after lorries stuck in snow

This story is over

— Update at 2.22pm: The lorries stuck in the snow have now been recovered and one lane of the bypass is open. There are still delays in the area.


The A46 Lincoln bypass remains closed in both directions at the Riseholme A15 roundabout after several lorries got stuck in the snow this morning.

Long queues are reported, with the bypass gridlocked northbound from the Whisby roundabout in south Lincoln.

Some people have been stuck in traffic all morning and adjacent routes are very busy too.

Avoid the Lincoln A46 bypass if possible.

A snowplough attempted to clear the carriageway mid-morning but was not able to open the road.

Now the lorries are awaiting recovery, but there’s no indication at the moment when this will happen.
