Added on 09 December 2021

Highways England logoHighways England will be carrying out essential drainage maintenance on the A46 between Stanton on the Wolds and Bingham.

The works will relieve the drainage blockages caused by debris including silts, leaves and roots. These blockages can cause the surface water to back up the system, through the drainage chambers and onto the carriageway.

Once completed, road users will benefit from improved road safety.
