Update by Eurovia - Sleaford Rugby Club Junction Improvements

Statement and Update from Eurovia Contracting (client Lincolnshire County Council)

Works at the Sleaford Rugby Club junction are well under way and we are on course to complete as planned in early October.

The carriageway resurfacing phase is programmed to be undertaken during night time hours. Whilst night time works will help to alleviate any distruption and traffic queues to the travelling public during the working week, we are mindful that there may be some distruption du...ring the hours of operation for residents in the vicinity of the works.

Scope of Work - new lanes installed on all approaches to the A17/A153 rugby club junction, traffic signals installed at the A17/A153 rugby club junction and right turn ban implemented from the A153 onto the A17 slip road.

Progress so far - installation of new kerbs and carriageway widening completed to the East side A153 and A17 slip road, surface water culvert installation complete, East side A153 footway construction complete, West side carriageway widening and footway construction: 50% complete, East side street lighting columns installed, temporary traffic lights will be installed week commencing 31st August for the construction of pedestrian refuge islands on the A153.

To enable the workforce to work safely and to protect members of the public, road closures will be implemented. The closures will result in a diversion route and the route will be clearly signposted and monitored by our Traffic Management Team. To ensure your safety and that of our onsite team, gatemen will be on site to help escort you through the works where necesary and we may politely ask for your patience as you may have to wait a few minutes to be able to get through safely. We are able to supply 'residents car windscreen passes' to help identify you as residing within the works area.

Phasing Plan for the Works -

Phase 1: A17 entry and exit slip roads (up to 5 nights starting from Monday 7th September) - diversion route via A17 Holdingham roundabout to Kirkby La Thorpe and vice versa.

Phase 2: A153 North of the A17 junction (up to 6 nights) - diversion route via A15 North/B1181 Scopwick/B1188 Ruskington and vice versa.

Phase 3: A153 South of the A17 junction (up to 7 nights) - diversion route via A15 North/B1181 Scopwick/B1188 Ruskington and vice versa.

Please be advised that the works are expected to last for four weeks and dates and times programmed are subject to suitable weather conditions, but may be subject to change due to weather conditions or unforseen operational changes.

For any further information or queries, please contact Eurovia at joanne.plews@eurovia.co.uk or telephone 07768 940187.
