Boston introduces Sleaford Road right turn ban

A ban on turning right is set to come into effect on a main road in a Lincolnshire town, in a bid to ease traffic.

From Sunday, drivers will not be allowed to turn right from Sleaford Road on to Brothertoft Road in Boston.

Jonathan Wickham, senior project leader from Lincolnshire County Council, said the ban would initially last for six months and be permanent if successful.

The ban forms part of the Boston Transport Strategy.

Mr Wickham said: "The traffic flow will be monitored closely throughout this six-month period to measure the impact of the right turn ban on surrounding roads.

"Motorists should find they will get through the junction more quickly as vehicles won't be backed up waiting for others to turn right."

Signs will be put up to direct drivers towards Lister Way, as an alternative to the Brothertoft Road turn.
