Route

The A152 is a short A-road in south Lincolnshire. Despite the fact it is a 3-digit A-road it is not particularly important - and its road number rarely appears on signs.

Donington - Surfleet Seas End

Station Street, Donington

The road starts at a roundabout at the western end of the A52 Donington bypass. It heads east through the centre of town before running through Quadring and Gosberton to a T-junction where it TOTSOs right.

Continuing south, the A152 crosses the Risegate Eau, one of the Fen drains, to reach a roundabout. It turns left and heads along a straight road to the east to end at a roundabout on the A16.

History

The A152 dates back to the original 1922 road numbering scheme by the Ministry of Transport. Originally it ran between the A1 in Grantham to the A16 east of Gosberton (the location of the current TOTSO).

Then in 1951 it was decided to extend the A52 east from its terminus at the time in Grantham, right through to Skegness and Mablethorpe. This resulted in the A152 being shortened considerably. From 1951 the A152 then ran from the TOTSO A52 junction next to the market place in Donington to the A16 at Gosberton. Then in 1990 the A52 Donington bypass was opened which resulted in the A152 regaining a short part of its original route. The A152 now started (and continues to do so) at the new junction of the Park Farm roundabout, to the west of Donington.

Then in 1992 the new southern section of the A16 Spalding-Boston route was built. This then lead to the extension of the A152 from its terminus east of Gosberton along the original route of the A16 to the newly built A16 Surfleet roundabout junction. This resulted in the creation of a new TOTSO junction at Gosberton as the original A16 junction wasn't altered.
