Drivers advised to avoid High Street during works

Ongoing works: Drivers are advised to avoid the High Street during evenings this week, as well as day time Friday.

Lincoln drivers are advised to avoid the High Street area in the evenings this week and during the day on Friday, as work on the road nears completion.

Further road surface repairs are being carried out and temporary traffic lights will be in place between 6.30pm and 11pm on Monday to Thursday evenings, and between 7.30am and 6pm on Friday.

Paving slabs are also being replaced on the High Street between St Marks Street and the level crossing at night between 17 and 31 October, which isn’t expected to cause any disruption.

Senior Engineer, Peter Saxby, said: “We’ve arranged for these further repairs to be carried out mainly during the evening this week, keeping disruption to an absolute minimum for drivers.

“I would like to thank everyone for the patience over the summer.

“Motorists will find they can get from A to B much more quickly when the work is finished and pedestrians will notice high quality pavements under foot and more reliable public transport.”

New parking bays were built and footpaths were repaved in July on the High Street.

Extensive work to replace traffic lights, repave footpaths and resurface Dixon Street between the High Street and Boultham Park Road took place over the summer.

The work is expected to be entirely finished by the end of November.
