Traffic Management Update - January 2021

Our works to improve the A46 near Dunholme and Welton are continuing ahead steadily and we're still on track for having the new roundabout open this spring.

As part of this important project, we are also taking the opportunity to rebuild sections of the A46 near Dunholme and Welton that aren't in the best condition.

A section of the A46 near Dunholme and Welton will be closed for reconstruction overnight for two weeks starting in early February.

The night-time closure will be in place on the A46, between Deepdale Lane in Nettleham and Lincoln Road near Welton, for up to two weeks starting on Monday 1 February, 7pm to 6am, Monday to Friday (subject to weather).

This will involve excavating 565 tonnes of material before using 630 tonnes of tarmac to completely rebuild it.

This piece of work will inevitably cause some disruption, but we'll be doing all we can to keep this to a minimum, including carrying the works out overnight so people can continue using the A46 in the day.

The diversion route during the closure will be via A46 Nettleham Roundabout / A15 Riseholme Roundabout / A15-A1500 Showground Roundabout / A15-A631 Roundabout (Caenby Corner) / and either the A631 or A1103 back to the A46, and vice versa.

Access will be maintained to residents on Heath Lane (from Scothern), Horncastle Lane (from the A15), and Nettleham Heath (from the A46).

Due to COVID restrictions, I will not be able to post any future update letters so for the latest news on the A46 Dunholme / Welton Roundabout, can you please send me your email address so I can email updates or visit

I want to thank everyone affected in advance for staying patient while the team continues working to make this important A46 junction safer and more efficient.
