A1 Roadworks - July 2022

27 Jun 2022 14:18

Letter regarding roadworks on the A1/A47, with diversions via the A43;

I am writing to tell you that we will be carrying out work to renew the signs and carry out carriageway maintenance works which will include upgrading 17.2km of safety barrier, on the A1 between Wothorpe and Wansford. Once complete, this will ensure the A1 continues to remain in a safe and serviceable condition.

We plan to complete this work over 5 months, starting Monday 4 July. All works will be carried out on weeknights, with occasional weekend nights between 9pm and 6am, weather permitting.

Throughout the duration of this scheme, temporary speed limits will be in place on the A1 for safety reasons. Speeds will be reduced to 40mph between Wothorpe and Wansford, with temporary speed cameras installed.
