Major improvements set for A151 in and near Bourne


Works to rebuild sections of the A151 near Bourne will start next month.

Cllr Richard Davies, executive member for highways, said: “There are three sections of the A151, in Edenham, Bourne and Guthram Gowt, that are nearing the end of their serviceable life, so we’ve taken the decision to be rebuild them before they get any worse. 

“As part of these works, we’ll be using over 5,700 tonnes of tarmac and other road-building materials to carry this important project out.

“While on site, we’ll also be taking the opportunity to carry out some other maintenance including gully and manhole replacements and a refurb of the traffic signals at the bridge south of Edenham.”
