A series of road closures will be in place as part of the ongoing ‘Levelling Up’ improvement works taking place on the A16 in Boston near Marsh Lane roundabout.

Councillor Richard Davies, executive member for highways, said: “We’re now at the stage where the team is ready to start laying the final layer of road surfacing on the A16.

“There will inevitably be some disruption during this phase of working, but we’ll be working as efficiently as possible to ensure the closures aren’t in place any longer than they need to be.

“We’re getting ever closer to having our Marsh Lane roundabout improvements complete later this year. Once finished, people can except less congestion and improved safety on the A16.

“In the meantime, I want to thank everyone for their patience.”
