LINCOLNSHIRE SHOW 2017: IMPORTANT INFORMATION IF YOU ARE TRAVELLING FROM THE BRIGG AREA
There's welcome news for people from the Brigg area who are driving down to just north of Lincoln to enjoy the Lincolnshire Show 2017 tomorrow and/or Thursday, June 21 and 22.
North Lincolnshire Council has suspended work it is carrying out on the A15 which would otherwise have added to show visitors' journey time.
We always go to Lincoln on the B-road route through Scawby Brook, Hibaldstow and Redbourne but many Brigg drivers prefer to go to Forest Pines near Broughton and then head south along the A15.
The cost of a daily adult ticket if you pay at the gate is £24. Or visit Brigg Tourist Information Centre at the Buttercross to buy tickets in advance for the county's biggest annual spectator event.

FROM NORTH LINCOLNSHIRE COUNCIL
North Lincolnshire Council is currently carrying out road surface dressing work on the A15 running between the M180 roundabout and down to the B1206 Redbourne Mere junction. This work will be temporarily suspended on Wednesday 21 and Thursday 22 June when Lincolnshire Show is taking place.
The work to improve the condition of the road surface will resume on Friday 23 June.
There will be an increased amount of traffic on the A15 travelling to Lincolnshire Show and the council has acted to temporarily suspend the works to make sure that motorists do not experience any additional delays.
A temporary 10mph speed limit will still apply due to loose chippings on the road.
A North Lincolnshire Council spokesperson, said: “The A15 is one of the main routes for people travelling to Lincolnshire Show and we anticipate a big increase in the amount of traffic using the road over the two days that the event is taking place.
“We have asked the contractors working on the A15 to temporarily suspend what they are doing for the two days of the show. It is hoped this will help the traffic to be free flowing and avoid any added hold ups for motorists.
“Unfortunately there are still loose chippings on the road so for safety reasons, a 10mph speed limit will remain in place.”
NF ADDS: Take your pick of routes but the B-road option through Hibaldstow seems the best option for Brigg drivers.
