Road closures set for Lincoln Santa Fun Run

This story is over

More than 20 roads in uphill Lincoln will be closed or diverted on Sunday, December 11, to facilitate the annual Santa Fun Run.

The closures will be in place from 8am to 3pm and will include the suspension of resident parking bays on Drury Lane and Westgate.

The limited waiting bays in Bailgate, Drury lane, Minster Yard, Westgate and Union Road will also be suspended during the event.

More than 1,200 runners are expected to don Santa suits in the the 2011 Lincoln Santa Fun Run.
