Lincoln High Street works for six weeks to improve footway

Footpath closed: Six weeks of works are planned to carry out maintenance to sections of footway on Lincoln High Street.

Work will begin on Monday, June 30, to carry out maintenance to sections of footway on Lincoln High Street, lasting approximately six weeks.

The works include replacing the old concrete slabs and other minor alterations and will extend from the junction with Alfred Street to Firth Road.

The northbound inside lane will be closed to allow for the works.

There will also be a temporary pedestrian footway for safe access to businesses and residential properties in the area affected by the works.

Dave Underwood, Principle Highways Officer at Lincolnshire County Council, said: “These improvements are long overdue and will not only improve the safety of the footway but will also enhance the area with the continued use of the attractive paving used further south on the High Street.

“We will, with the contractor, be working with those businesses and residents directly affected who will be informed every step of the way.

“Whilst every effort will be made to reduce the disruption to pedestrians and businesses some inconvenience will be caused and we thank you in advance for your cooperation and understanding.

“Every effort will be made to support trade throughout the period of work to allow continued access for customers.”
