A new pedestrian crossing is to be installed on the A16 at Sibsey to improve safety.

The works will begin on the puffin crossing north of the junction of the A16 Main Road and the B1184 Frithville Road on Friday, July 22.

Graeme Butler, traffic and projects manager at Lincolnshire County Council, said: “The new crossing will make it much safer for school children and residents to cross the A16, which many do to reach the local post office and primary school.

“It also comes with detectors that can tell when someone is crossing, and, if necessary, give them more time so they can get across safely at their own pace.”

The work is expected to take four weeks, weather permitting. Temporary traffic lights will be in place, and a walkway will be provided. Some night-time road closures may be needed while the road is resurfaced.
