Motorists ignoring diversion signs cause ‘chaos’ on the roads

MOTORISTS who ignored diversion road signs caused ‘chaos’ at Swineshead Bridge - according to Lincolnshire County Council.

The authority encouraged drivers to follow the diversions while major surface dressing work took place last week on the A17 and A1121 at Swineshead Bridge and Bicker Bar.

Principal highway officer, Alan Spinks, said: “Around 95 per cent of motorists were ignoring the formal diversions in place and trying to make their own way around the works, which was causing chaos between the A52 at Kirton Home and Hubbert’s Bridge.”

Surface dressing also took place on the A1121 between Swineshead Bridge and Hubberts Bridge.
