Resurfacing works on seven roads to begin with closure of Lincoln bypass

A programme of resurfacing works will be carried out across roads in Lincolnshire between April and August.

A new road surface will be laid on seven roads in the county – in the Lincoln, Market Rasen and Spilsby areas.

The project will start with the A46/A158 Nettleham Road roundabout in Lincoln on Monday, April 18.

The A46 will be closed over night between A15 roundabout and A158 roundabout.

The A46 will be closed over night between A15 roundabout and A158 roundabout.

The works are expected to be completed by April 30, and then the following roads will be improved in order.

  • A631 – Market Rasen
  • B1273 Riseholme Road roundabout – Lincoln
  • B1273 Nettleham Road roundabout – Lincoln
  • B1273 the Avenue crossroads – Lincoln
  • A158 Partney roundabout – Spilsby
  • A158 Burgh Le Marsh roundabout – Spilsby

Subject to weather conditions, all of these roads will be upgraded by August 2016.

Councillor Richard Davies, Executive Member for Highways, said: “We continuously monitor the condition of our county’s roads and make sure they are in a good condition for motorists to use.

“These are all busy routes with high traffic volumes and have deteriorated through wear and tear.

“We will completely remove the top layer of the roads and lay down new surfaces which will last for at least the next 20 years.

“There are more roads in Lincolnshire that we need to improve with this technique so we are improving those most in need first, before starting another programme later this year.”

Nettleham Road roundabout

  • The new road surface will be built overnight, from 8pm to 6am, Monday to Friday
  • Lincoln Bypass will be closed during these times, on both sides of the roundabout from the A15 Riseholme Road to the A158 Wragby Road
  • A diversion will be in place via Riseholme Road/Longdales Road/Ruskin Avenue/Wragby Road
  • Access for northbound and southbound traffic over the Nettleham Road Roundabout will be maintained under temporary traffic lights
  • Drivers are advised to allow extra time for their journeys and drive with extra care and reduced speed over the newly treated surfaces until all road markings have been replaced

Lincolnshire County Council says more information about the following six schemes will be released shortly.
