Roadworks scheduled for Newark Road and A158 Wragby Road

Traffic delays are to be expected as a weekend of roadworks are scheduled in Lincoln and main routes to seaside resorts.

A section of Newark Road (A1434) in North Hykeham will be subject to a 20mph speed limit and stop/go boards on Sunday, August 17, due to resurfacing works.

Lincolnshire County Council will carry out surface dressing between the junction with Moor Lane and the A46 roundabout.

The work is programmed to take place on between 7am and 6pm.

Alan Aistrup, head of highways at Lincolnshire County Council, said: “Surface dressing waterproofs the road to prevent pot holes forming, and it also provides a new, skid-resistant surface.

“Providing the weather remains dry, we’ll carry out the work this Sunday. We’ve tried to minimise disruption as much as possible, but I apologise if it causes any inconvenience.

“We’ll return to the site on Monday to sweep-up any loose chippings, and then again on Wednesday and the following Sunday.”

In addition to the Lincoln works, road users are being alerted to other surface dressing on A158 Wragby Road at Bullington.

A section of the A158 Wragby Road to Rand Farm Park and Skegness will be resurfaced on Saturday, August 16.

The work is programmed to take place on Saturday morning, and should be finished by midday.

The road will be open to two way traffic, although a convoy system and 20mph speed limit will be in place.

Alan Aistrup said: “We’ll return to the site on Sunday to sweep-up any loose chippings, and then again on Wednesday and the following Saturday.”
