A1073 Spalding to Eye Improvement 18 October 2011

Construction of a new single two-lane carriageway to replace the existing A1073 which connects Peterborough to Spalding via Crowland. The existing road is non-primary, but is preferred by traffic over the official A15/A16 routing via Market Deeping as it is more direct. As a result the A1073 is heavily overloaded, has a very poor accident record and is difficult to maintain.

It is expected that the resulting high-standard road will become a primary route on opening.
