A18 closed for 24 hours on Wednesday


A large stretch of the A18 will be closed from midnight tonight (Tuesday March 18, going into Wednesday March 19) for up to 24 hours while essential maintenance work is carried out. The road will be closed between the Ludborough junction where it meets the A16, and Laceby Top where the road meets the A46.

If work is completed quicker than anticipated, the road will be re-opened before midnight on Wednesday.

In the meantime, diversion routes will be put in place using the A16, A1243 and A46.

The essential maintenance work includes grass cutting, sign repairs, highway surveys and road maintenance.

Access will be maintained for business and residents on the route of the closure.
