Lincolnshire highways bosses working with Norfolk and Cambridgeshire to avoid clash during A17 Cross Keys Bridge work in Sutton Bridge

More news, no ads


Highways bosses say they are working with other counties to avoid major disruption when Cross Keys Bridge is painted and repaired next year.

Earlier this year councillors gave the go-ahead to a four-month project for the bridge, which will cost up to £1.5m and require temporary lights.

The council has promised to man the lights with a member of staff to try to avoid the sorts of long queues experienced on the A17 previously - and has also pledged to ensure the job doesn’t clash with works in Wisbech.

Richard Waters, principal engineer (structures) at Lincolnshire County Council, said: “We are currently evaluating tenders for the job and are still intending to start on site late February 2022.

"The intention is to finish before the summer holidays so as not to disrupt holiday traffic.

“We are working closely with authorities in Norfolk and Cambridgeshire to ensure that there are no clashes with other planned works that might cause further disruption to road users.”
