Speed limit could be reduced in Lincolnshire crash hot spot
Lincolnshire County Council are reportedly weighing up the possibility of reducing the speed limit on a particular stretch of the A16 and making improvements to local signage.
The junction of the A16 Crowland Bypass, with the B1166 and the B1040 is a particular crash hotspot and is used by thousands of people in Lincolnshire as it connects the south of the county with Cambridgeshire. The junction has reported 21 collisions since opening, with 3 resulting in fatalities.
The road currently has a 60mph speed limit in place.
Any measures that help reduce the number of serious and fatal accidents along this stretch of the A16, should be welcomed by local residents and road users.
