A couple of years ago the Transport Department decided to reroute the A16 and built a single carriageway road. Now from depots in Spalding umpteen refrigerated lorries take the vegetable produce of Lincolnshire over the country. Some lorries do keep to the 40MPH limit whilst others exceed it.
Behind those travelling at the speed limit are normally a large queue of cars. With frustration and a keenness to get on sometimes cars overtake when they should not and the result is another tragedy. Thus the route is designated a RED ROUTE because it is one that is dangerous.
Now Lincolnshire is poorly served by good quality roads - would love to know why they did not dual the A16 with two lanes each way.
