Weekend A1 closure near Grantham postponed

Part of the Grantham Southern Relief Road project

The final in the latest series of road closures for works on the A1, as part of the Grantham Southern Relief Road project, has been temporarily postponed

A weekend northbound A1 closure was due to be in place between 8pm on Friday, May 20 and 6am on Monday, May 23.

However, Lincolnshire County Council said the closure has been temporarily postponed and once new dates have been confirmed they will be shared.

Works on phase three began in April this year, with the council anticipating that winter 2023 will be the completion date for the relief road.

This will be with the view to reduce congestion and carbon emissions, and provide opportunities for growth in the local economy.

The £102 million Grantham Southern Relief Road project has been led by Lincolnshire County Council, supported by South Kesteven District Council, Highways England, Greater Lincolnshire LEP, Network Rail, Homes England, the Department for Transport and local business contributions.
