Overnight closures of Lincoln city centre roads for East West Link works

A number of Lincoln city centre roads will be closed overnight this week as the work on the East West Link Road enters its final stages.

Work on the £22 million project began in November 2014, and vehicles are expected to be able to use the new road by September.

Roadworks are scheduled from Monday, August 8 until Sunday, August 14 to allow the surfacing of the new road on Kesteven Street.

Lincolnshire County Council has said that the works are taking place overnight to minimise disruption to businesses and residents.

The East West Link Road is expected to open to motorists in September
