Six weeks roadworks set for Lincoln junction

Brayford roadworks: Over a month of roadworks have been scheduled for the Brayford Wharf East/ Wigford Way junction in Lincoln.

Over a month of roadworks have been scheduled for the Brayford Wharf East and Wigford Way junction in Lincoln.

The work is set to start on Monday, July 21 and is hoped to be completed by Friday, August 29.

The Brayford Wharf East junction will be widened, which will enable drivers to turn right onto Wigford Way.

In addition, traffic light signals equipment will be upgraded, and a number of sections of footpath will be re-paved.

The project is being carried out by Lincolnshire County Council ahead of the construction of Network Rail’s new footbridge over the Brayford Wharf East level crossing.

The roads in the area will be open for business as usual, although temporary traffic lights will be in place.

Chris Kidd, Senior Technician at Lincolnshire County Council, said: “This piece of work will enable Network Rail to build the much needed footbridge over the level crossing.

“We’re carrying out this work now so there’ll be less disruption to businesses and residents during the construction of the bridge.

“It should take us no longer than six weeks to complete, and we can do it without closing any roads so we don’t expect to cause too much disruption.

“Be aware that the level crossing will still be operating as normal throughout the works and so please make sure you keep clear.”
