The concrete surface on the A180 is finally going to be replaced by a surface which will be more comfortable to drive on and less disruptive to nearby residents.
Following a series of conversations and letters between me, Highways England and Government Ministers, I was informed by Minister for Roads, Jesse Norman MP, that £10 million has been allocated to upgrade the road.
Urgent works will be carried out by Highways England possibly as early as this year, with the final section finished by 2021.
This is a very positive decision from the Minister and we obviously welcome it and I know residents in Stallingborough and other villages along the A180 will be delighted. I have spent time in people’s homes listening to the traffic and I know how annoying it can be. It produces a constant rumbling.
It has been a long campaign largely due to the costs involved in upgrading the concrete surface had unfortunately proved very hard wearing but it is fantastic to know that residents will not have to put up with it for much longer.
