Road to close for six months as Lincoln East West Link works progress

A section of a central Lincoln road will be closed to traffic for six months to allow works to progress on the city’s £22 million East West Link project.

Temporary restrictions will be in place on the eastbound lane of St Marks Street from Brayford Wharf East to High Street between February 15 and August 31, 2016.

Closures will be implemented as and when required during the six month period and signage detailing precise dates and times displayed on site in advance.

Alternative routes will be via Brayford Wharf East, Wigford Way, St Marys Street, Norman Street, St Marys Street & High Street.

Lincolnshire County Council has said arrangements will be made to enable pedestrians to access premises in the affected area while works progress.

As previously reported, work on the city’s East West Link entered a new phase in January, with a new road bridge installed off Tentercroft Street.

Cars are expected to be able to use the new road from September 2016.
