Plan to cut speed limit near Boston level crossing

A proposal has been made to reduce the speed limit along a section of road in Boston.

Part of the plans, with blue as 50mph, green as 30mph, both already in place, and red reduced to 40mph. From a document shared by the county council, with crown copyright and ordnance survey rights credited to Ordnance Survey.

Under the plans, the limit would be cut by 10mph to 40mph in Horncastle Road, near its junction with Redcap Lane and Rawson Lane.

A spokesman for Lincolnshire County Council said: “Concerns were raised by Network Rail because of the level crossing there. It was assessed under our speed limits policy and supported by the local councillor for it to go out to consultation.”
