To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, for what reason roadworks planned for the A1 near Harlaxton (a) are scheduled to take over 18 months to complete and (b) cannot be completed to a shorter timescale; and what steps he is taking to reduce congestion and delays experienced by motorists using the A1.

The planned roadworks on the A1 near Harlaxton are part of Lincolnshire County Council led works for the Grantham Relief Road. The planned work interacts with the strategic road network on the A1, and so Highways England is supporting Lincolnshire County Council to deliver this scheme. Highways England has reviewed the construction plans provided by Lincolnshire County Council’s contractor for the substantial and complex work required for the scheme, and agree with the suggested timeframe for the work. The appropriate measures have been considered to limit the inconvenience caused to road users during the work and, once completed, journey times are expected to improve locally.
