A17, Sleaford Bypass
A17, Sleaford Bypass
This part of the A17 acts as the Sleaford Bypass. It is one of only four sections of the route which are dual carriageways. With a length of 3 miles, it is the longest of these sections.
The A17
The A17 is the major route for HGV's accessing Norfolk from Northern England and the Midlands and also a major holiday route in the summer months for cars and caravans making their way to the seaside resorts of Hunstanton, Wells-next-the-Sea, Sheringham, Cromer and Great Yarmouth and is one of only two direct routes that links Norfolk with the A1, the other being the A47. It runs for almost 60 miles from Winthorpe, near Newark-on-Trent to King's Lynn across the flat landscape of the Lincolnshire fens with only four stretches of dual carriageway.
