It is designed to stop footballs from the youth pitch at Brigg Recreation Ground from finding their way onto the nearby and very busy A18 along Wrawby Road.
Footballs are unlikely to damage passing cars but the new fencing and netting should remove the need for players to retrieve wayward balls from the road.
We see this as a very sensible move by North Lincolnshire Council, which operates The Rec.
Prior to this expanse of grass being used for youth football, it played host to hockey matches and balls often found a way through the hawthorn boundary hedge and onto Wrawby Road.
