Collision causing 30 minute delays on A1

A road traffic collision is causing delays of 30 minutes on the A1 in Lincolnshire.

Highways England says the tailback is between the junctions of the A607 (Grantham) and the B1174 (Little Ponton), covering several miles of the southbound carriageway. Lane 2 (of 2) is closed and Highways England says it has resources deployed working hard to restore normal conditions as soon as possible.

For traffic approaching the delays locally, motorists are advised to expect disruption with extra journey time and you may wish to re-route or delay your journey.

A statement from Highways England said: “If travelling towards this area from much farther afield, you may wish to change your strategic route, allow extra travel time and follow guidance from our on-road variable message signs and media.”
