Merging warriors reloaded: Lincoln lorry driver straddles both lanes on A46

A professional Lincoln lorry driver is one of the latest caught taking it upon themselves trying to police both lanes of the A46.

Furious drivers stuck behind the lorry, which was filmed on the stretch between the Riseholme and Carholme roundabouts on Thursday at just after 4pm.

The person who got in touch with The Lincolnite sent the video to the driver’s boss, who is said to be furious.

The lorry driver is not the first and is unlikely to be the last person caught on camera straddling both lanes ahead of the single lane closure on the A46.

A section of the road has been reduced to one lane due to ongoing work on the A15 Riseholme roundabout. On the approach, motorists are given around a mile of warnings before they’re instructed to merge in turn at the closure.

They were filmed straddling both lanes in what appears to be an attempt to stop others from using the dual carriageway.

Temporary Canwick Hill traffic lights were the centre of debate at the start of the week.

The most prominent gripe was aimed at those obstructing others from using both lanes of the carriageway.

But later in the week a driver on the same stretch of the A46 as the lorry driver was also caught straddling both lanes.
