Road closure - Kirkby Lane, Woodhall Spa

November 15, 2017

KIRKBY Lane, Woodhall Spa will be closed to traffic from the junction of the B1191 Horncastle Road from November 20 until 24 to allow the decontamination of an area of Roughton Woods following the recent discovery of Mustard Gas.  Access for residents of Kirkby Lane will remain available.


Whilst the Mustard Gas canisters have been removed, there remains some contamination in the soil on the site that needs to be removed and disposed of.  This work will be led by the Ministry of Defence.


The road closure is necessary for the safety of those working on the site and the wider community.
