BRIGG ROADWORKS ON A18 NEAR TESCO AND LIDL CREATE DELAYS FOR DRIVERS
Re-surfacing work on the A18 at the roundabout near the Tesco and Lidl stores in Brigg caused long tailbacks of traffic and delays for drivers today (Sunday, November 24)
North Lincolnshire Council gave notice that the work was coming up, but vehicles were queuing along Barnard Avenue, past the Monument and down Bigby Road - the A1084 - as far as the car lot near the level crossing.
Having been to Tesco by car to use the bottle bank and nip in the store for a couple of items we wondered how we were going to comply with the no right turn instruction, as it was impossible to go left and use the roundabout, due to the roadworks.
However, someone connected with the work had clearly thought ahead and the no right turn instruction was not in force today. So getting out of Tesco and onto the A18 was actually quicker than usual!
