Wharf Lane and A153 Junction in Coningsby

Have your say

Coningsby councillors were shocked to hear that improvements to the Wharf Lane/A153 junction will not be made, despite Cemex UK contributing money to Lincolnshire County Council for the work to be completed.

The corner was due to be reduced and the turn widened to give lorries space to turn without cutting into the soft verge.

Members heard that while shrubbery had been cut back by LCC work to improve the junction would not take place as the funds had been spent elsewhere. Councillors said the verges were being demolished and that this would have been avoided if the money had been utilised correctly.
