  2. Row erupts over changes to busy Lincoln junction

    Officials at a Lincolnshire war memorial are criticising highways bosses after changes were made to a nearby junction and they were forced to pay for it.

    Junction on Canwick Hill

    The junction near the International Bomber Command Centre (IBCC) on Canwick Hill has recently undergone work which Lincolnshire County Council claims was requested by the charity.

    Some motorists claim the changes mean it's unclear where to turn right, and some drivers are mistakenly turning onto the wrong lane and into oncoming traffic.

    But the IBCC says they wanted a roundabout to be installed and have been forced to pay for the changes.

    Quote Message: It's not that we wanted it done quickly, we didn't want it done at all. We see there to be no need for any road junction improvements. We have had to pay over £300,000 to fund roadworks which we didn't want, and we asked to be taken off as a condition." from Nicky Van Der Drift IBCC Chief Executive Officer
