Karen Cassar, assistant director for highways, said: “As part of the ongoing construction of the northern section of Spalding’s new relief road, we will be implementing further traffic restrictions in the area so the team can get the new roundabout built.

“These closures and other traffic management measures will, no doubt, cause some disruption for the travelling public in and around Spalding and Pinchbeck – but we’ll be doing everything we can to keep this to minimum, including making sure there is clear diversion route signage out for drivers to follow during the road closures.”

“And Enterprise Way businesses concerned about how the closure will affect them are encouraged to contact Eurovia’s public liaison officer.”
