Grantham Road will be closed to outbound traffic – traffic heading out of the town centre – between the junction with Northfield Road and the A15. Traffic leaving Sleaford town centre will be diverted via London Road, Stump Cross Hill, London Road and the A15. Traffic coming into Sleaford via Grantham Road will not be affected.
The road closure will start on Sunday 5 February and is expected to be finished by 24 February.
National Grid Authorising Engineer Paul Martin said: “We are sorry for any inconvenience caused. We are renewing the gas mains so that local people can continue to enjoy safe and reliable gas supplies for decades to come. The existing iron mains are being replaced with tough, hardwearing plastic pipes that will last for at least 80 years.
“To carry out the work safely we will need to temporarily close Grantham Road to outbound traffic. We will make every effort to complete the work as soon as possible.”
For any enquiries about this work people should contact National Grid’s customer services team on 0800 096 5678.
