The A158 Burgh-le-Marsh bypass officially opened on Friday, 30 November 2007. This will ease congestion, improve safety and provide more reliable journey times.

The road, which is 5.1km (approximately three miles) long, bypasses to the north of Burgh-le-Marsh and will take a projected 80% of the traffic from the town.

Councillor William Webb, Executive Councillor for Highways at Lincolnshire County Council, said:
"We are very pleased to officially open the Burgh-le-Marsh bypass. Over 110,000 man-hours have been spent constructing the route. Despite incurring significant disruption and delays due to wet weather, including severe summer flooding, the works were regularly re-programmed to maximise efficiencies and the bypass is now ready to make a real difference to the area."

John Panton, Mayor of Burgh le Marsh, added: "I should like to congratulate May Gurney and Lincolnshire County Council on the excellent job they have done. A tremendous amount of work must have gone into the planning stage. Through their vision, and with running a tight ship, they finished in record time and everyone I speak to in Burgh is very impressed. We have waited seventy years for this bypass and it has been worth waiting for."
