Link Road marks on Sleaford Rec met with mixed reaction
Lines have been painted on the Sleaford Recreation Ground to mark out where the proposed new Link Road would be built.
A blue line is said to indicate the outer edge of the proposed highway and a red line has been painted to indicate the area of land which would be lost to compulsory purchase order.
Sleaford Town Council with local construction company Smith Construction marked out the land using plans from Lincolnshire County Council.
Around a dozen people were at the area to see the plans this morning.

Corrine Shimmon, who has three children under the age of seven and was at the Recreation Ground this morning, was in complete support of the road plans.
She said: “I rarely see the area of the park which will be affected by this used by anyone other than people walking their dogs.
“And I think the investment will benefit the park’s facilities because it’s money the councils wouldn’t have to spend.”
But Ken Garrill who lives opposite the site and used to work as a manager at a Tesco store said he couldn’t support the plans.
He said: “To destroy all these trees is crazy. The trees help with drainage and I’ve heard that is they go and we get heavy rain the bowling green will flood.
“I live right near the site and there will be 24 hour activity at Tesco. I also think the road will be too close to the children’s play area.”
