A1 fully reopens after lorry crashed through central barrier closing road for 18 hours

Police statement: Drivers warned of disruption after incidents on the A46 and A1

The A46 northbound is currently closed at the Newark Showground roundabout following a single vehicle incident at around 2.40pm today (Thursday 29 August 2019). We were called to a report that a lorry had left the road and went into a ditch. Roads closures remain in place and motorists are advised to avoid the area if possible.

Further road closures are in place following an earlier collision on the A1 at Long Bennington, Lincolnshire, meaning long tailbacks on the A1 and A46 southbound towards Newark.

Drivers travelling from Lincoln on the A46 are advised to take the A15 southbound towards Sleaford and then take the A52 to Grantham where they can rejoin the A1.

Anyone heading southbound on the A1, coming off at Newark, should take the A46 southbound to Bingham and then take the A52 towards Grantham where they can rejoin the A1.
