Weather blamed for Tritton Rd works delays

The Lincolnshire County Council say poor weather has delayed completion of the improvements at all three junctions along Tritton Road.

All works are now expected to be completed by November 26, but the council insisted that all “activities are weather dependent”.

The whole project is estimated to cost £600,000, and most of the bill is footed by Sainsbury’s, as part of their ongoing process to expand the store.

The uncompleted works are at three junctions along Tritton Road: Skellingthorpe Road junction, Doddington Road junction and at Sainsbury’s entrance.

At the Skellingthorpe Road junction outstanding works include loop-cutting, white-lining, topsoiling and seeding of verges, spoil removal and tidying up.

Works for the Skellingthorpe Road junction are expected to be finalised by November 19, and until then traffic management will be in place.

At the Sainsbury’s entrance outstanding works include: loop-cutting, white-lining, topsoiling and seeding of verges, footway surfacing, high-friction surfacing, pedestrian guardrail installation, streetlighting works, traffic signal commissioning, spoil removal and tidying up.

The closure at the end of Moorland Ave and the right-turn prohibition at the Sainsbury’s entrance will continue as all works should be completed by November 19.

Outstanding works at the Doddington Road junction include island construction, carriageway surface course, footway surfacing, high-friction surfacing, pedestrian guardrail installation, loop-cutting, traffic signal commissioning, white-lining, topsoiling and seeding of verges, spoil removal and tidying up.

The use of three-way temporary lights and closure of Doddington Road East will continue as all works are expected to be completed at this junction by November 26.
