@ricky Tarr – the updated computer system is not being done in isolation, it;s part of the backend services contract which was recently awarded to Serco, previously held by Mouchel. More info:

Hi Andrew,

I understand and sympathise that this accident has shocked and caused distress to you, but I would like you to consider the facts surrounding the accident.

The circumstances of this accident are totally unique. The barrier was in place for over 20 years and there wasn’t one comparable accident during this time. It was not designed to be hit head on nor can it be as this would pose a significant danger to motorists.

We will shortly start work to replace the safety barrier and I can confirm a stronger barrier will be in place. This will be a similar barrier to the ones in place in the middle of the Lincoln bypass, so that gives you an idea of the protection it will offer.

Keeping all residents safe on the county’s highways is of paramount importance to Lincolnshire County Council and myself. We will continue to spend our limited budget on improving the county’s roads in an attempt to reduce accident and casualty figures.

@yvonne – The Newark roadworks are difficult as it is always going to be tough to work on a congested part of the road network – we’ve tweaked the layout and it’s working as well as can be expected.
@doormatbrown – completely agree, top priority!
