Disruption for Tritton Road junction during improvement works

A junction along Tritton Road in Lincoln will have a number of turns closed off for a week while improvements take place.

The junction of Tritton Road and Moorland Avenue near Sainsbury’s will be improved during the February school half term from the 17th until the 22nd.

Lincolnshire County Council is upgrading to LED the traffic lights and is also replacing the poles, heads and cables.

Diversions and temporary traffic signals will be in place throughout the week of disruption.

The work will involve a ‘no right turn’ into Sainsbury’s from Trittion Road and a ‘no right turn’ in and out of Moorland Avenue.

Entry to Sainsbury’s will be via the Moorland Close entrance on Moorland Way.

Emma Sarjeant, from Traffic Signals at Lincolnshire County Council, said: “We’re carrying out the working during the half term week to keep any disruption to a minimum.

“Local residents and Sainsbury’s have been made aware prior the work starting,” she added.

Due to traffic signal maintenance works, there will be a no right turn restriction in place at the Sainsbury’s traffic light from/onto Moorland Avenue.

From February 17 to 21 February, the Stagecoach services 44a and 533 will be diverted due to the work.

Service 44a outbound journeys will operate as normal from Moorland Avenue and along Tritton Road.

Service 44a inbound journeys will divert from Doddington Road via Newark Road and De Wint Avenue, rejoining its normal route on Moorland Avenue.

Service 533 will divert from the junction via Skellingthorpe Road to rejoin its normal route from the Tritton Road junction.

Moorland Avenue will not be served by service 533. People who usually catch the bus on Moorland Avenue should use the stops on Skellingthorpe Road.
