The Spittlegate Scheme is being promoted by Lincolnshire County Council and delivered by a private developer under a Section 6 agreement. Highways England is supervising the works, but it is wholly funded and promoted by the County Council. The scheme involves the construction of a new grade separated junction on the A1, referred to as Spittlegate. The works on the A1 will form part of the Grantham Southern Relief Road.

The 50mph temporary speed limit is required for safety reasons, both for road users and the workforce during the construction of the works. Highways England worked closely with the Council to ensure that the works were planned in a way to minimise the impact on road users.

Further information on the status of the scheme, including its timeframe for delivery, can be found on the County Council’s website:
