Six weeks of works set for Greetwell Road in Lincoln

This story is over

Greetwell Road in Lincoln will be subject to a six week lane closure as part of the ongoing Eastern Bypass project.

Improvements will be made to increase the westbound lane capacity at the second mini-roundabout south of Wickes and improving safety and drainage at Greetwell Hollow.

Works are due to start on Monday, March 20 and are expected to last for six weeks (subject to weather conditions).

There will be an eastbound lane closure along this section for the duration of the works.

A signed diversion route will be in place via Outer Circle Road, Wragby Road, Hawthorne Road, Croft Lane and Church Lane.

Greetwell Road will remain open to westbound traffic into Lincoln, except for week commencing April 24 when full night-time closures of Greetwell Road will be in place between 8pm and 5am.

As part of the works, there will also be a full road closure of Greetwell Fields, which connects Greetwell Road to St Augustine Road, for the duration of the works.

Access to businesses and residences will be maintained throughout the works.

Councillor Richard Davies, Executive Member for Highways, said: “Once construction of the Lincoln Eastern Bypass is complete, Greetwell Road south of the mini-roundabout near Wickes, is set to experience an increase in traffic.

“This will be due to the opening of a new Greetwell Road roundabout that connects to the current Wragby Road / A158 roundabout.

“Once built, the new bypass roundabout at Greetwell Road will also connect to newly-constructed roundabouts at Washingborough Road, Lincoln Road and Sleaford Road.

“Our aspiration is to eventually use the Sleaford Road roundabout we’re constructing as part of the eastern bypass as a starting point for a North Hykeham Relief Road that would then connect to the A46 at Newark Road – forming a full ring road around Lincoln.”
