Sections of A17 to shut overnight for work


Two sections of the A17 are set to shut as part of a series of overnight works to key roads across the county.

The road will shut from Sutterton roundabout eastbound towards the A151 junction, from last night to July 13 and 17 to 18.
The A17 will also shut between Bicker Bar roundabout and the A15 Holdingham roundabout from July 11 to 14 and on July 19.
The work is part of a countywide bid to fix busy A roads - with sections of the A15 and A57 also to be tackled before July 22.
Shaun Butcher, network and development manager at Lincolnshire County Council, said: “We’ve carefully planned this scheme to minimise disruption, and we’ll be working on a number of sites simultaneously to get everything completed as quickly as possible.

“The roads are in good condition but by surface dressing them now we can extend their life by several years.”
The works will take place between 8pm and 6am on each of the dates.
