Section of A121 between Bourne and Carlby to be resurfaced in summer costing £450,000

Two sections of the A6121 between Bourne and Carlby will be resurfaced in the summer.

Work will be taking place on the A6121. The junction from the A151 West Road, just outside Bourne, to Toft Tunnel will be resurfaced between June 21 and 26.

A mixture of resurfacing and patching from Witham Crossroads to Carlby will also be done from June 28 to July 6.


The road will be closed whilst work takes place in those areas between 7pm and 6am each night.

Traffic will be diverted along the A151, A15, and over Tallington crossing on the A1175, to rejoin the A6121 at Stamford, and vice versa.

Karen Cassar, assistant director for highways at Lincolnshire County Council, said: "These sections of the A6121 have reached the end of their life, and we're bringing them up to standard as part of this summer's maintenance programme.

"Resurfacing and patching are just part of the multi-million pound scheme of work we do every year to maintain and improve our road network; these two projects alone represent an investment of around £450,000.

"Despite work taking place overnight to reduce disruption, I know the road closure here will be inconvenient for some residents. So thank you for bearing with us whilst we improve your local road."

County councillor Sue Woolley (Con) said on Facebook that she and her colleague Robert Reid (Con) who both represent Bourne had been working "quietly in the background" to make a case for the work for some time because it is in a bad condition.

She said: "I’m delighted highways have finally agreed to carry out this work. Parts of the road will have to be rebuilt and it will be expensive. The total cost will be many hundreds of thousands of pounds.

"We’ve all waited a long time for this but at long last, sometime in June, the work will start, so please be prepared for some overnight closures."
