Improvements to the A16/A151 Springfield Roundabout will start in Monday 25 September.

Cllr Richard Davies, executive member for highways, said: "Not only are our ‘Levelling Up’ works in Boston past their halfway point, but we’re now able to announce that our works to increase capacity on Springfield Roundabout in Spalding will start next month.

“As part of this important project, we’ll be increasing the size of the roundabout; adding additional entry and exit lanes on the A16; and improving entry and exit lanes on the A151.

“Similar to our other ‘Levelling Up’ projects, this project will help reduce congestion on the A16 and future-proof the roundabout for A16 upgrades down the line.”

The project is expected to take twelve months to complete.

Please note that from w/c 25th September for up to two weeks, the contractor will be setting up the site compound and carrying out preparatory works.

Once the works begin, a combination of temporary traffic signals and lane restrictions will be in place.

Later in the project, a series of night-time road closures will be used as needed on the A16 and A151. More details will be shared as the project progresses.

Cllr Davies added: “As with any major road improvement project, some disruption on local roads is inevitable when work is underway. However, we’ll be doing everything we can to keep people moving and to ensure access to the nearby businesses is maintained.”

The project will be funded by a portion of the £20m in ‘Levelling Up’ funding awarded to the county council in October 2021. The remaining funding is being used across four other projects, including improvements to Spalding’s A16/B1180 Greencell Roundabout, the A16 Marsh Lane Roundabout, and active travel improvements in Boston and Spalding.
