Section of Park Street will be closed for over one year for Lincoln student housing works

A section of Park Street will be closed for over one year as work begins in the new year on new student accommodation in Lincoln city centre.

IconInc is constructing a £20 million luxury student accommodation development on Mint Lane, with temporary road closures, lane closures and parking bay suspensions in place for 80 weeks from January 8, 2018.

In this period, Park Street will be closed between the junction of Mint Lane and Beaumont Fee.

Pedestrian access will be maintained at all times.

Mint Lane will remain open to safely accommodate the work but the existing disabled parking bays will be closed for the duration of the works.

A lane closure will also be in place on Beaumont Fee as and when required between 9.30am and 3.30pm.

The restrictions will remain in place for approximately 80 weeks. Businesses operating in the area will remain open as normal.

Naveen Ahmed, Managing Director of IconInc, said: “We are pleased to be bringing the IconInc brand to Lincoln, building on the success of our existing developments and setting a new standard in luxury student living in Lincolnshire.

“As we commence construction of the development, there will be works affecting the roads adjoining the site.

“We would like to thank residents and local businesses for their patience during this time and we will endeavour to keep disruption to a minimum.”
