Two-day stoplight mayhem on Tritton Road

Repairs: Traffic signals at a Lincoln junction are being repaired for two days.

Motorists planning to use Tritton Road in Lincoln next week are facing traffic diversions and restrictions due to traffic signal repairs at one of the junctions.

From Tuesday, April 12, to Thursday, April 14, works will commence to repair the traffic signals at the Morrison’s junction on Tritton Road.

The Lincolnshire Highways Alliance will switch off the signals and install temporary traffic lights to control the junctions.

Right-turns into the Tritton Road retail park will be prohibited in order to allow the main road to run in both directions at the same time.

Diversion signs will be put in place to direct southbound traffic to the Morrison’s superstore via Beevor Street and to direct northbound traffic to the Tritton Retail Park via the Ropewalk roundabout.

Traffic will be able to exit the superstore and retail park as normal.

Tim Clark, Principal Engineer, said the works are taking place during the school break to avoid massive traffic delays.

“Following problems with the lights last year, an investigation revealed that certain components were nearing the end of their service life.

“We’re now going in to replace them. The works are being undertaken during the school break to minimise delays to traffic.

“Pedestrians are asked to cross with caution as the red and green man signals will not be available.

“We apologise for any convenience caused during the works,” Clark added.
