Overnight closures of A153 starting next week for resurfacing

This could could some disruption.

Three weeks of overnight closures will be on place on the A153 as the council carries out work to replace worn out carriageway.

The work will begin on Monday, October 23, and is expected to be completed by the middle of November, subject to reasonable weather conditions.

Closures will be in place from 6pm to 3am each evening, with works scheduled to finish at midnight.

Diversions will be via the A153, B1192, A1121, A17 and B1395.

Access will be provided for pedestrians, residents and businesses during the works.

The works will take place in four sections:

  • Section 1 – Tattershall Castle to Market Place (east) / four evenings from Monday, October 23
  • Section 2 – Market Place (east) to Curzon Estate Road / three evenings from Friday, October 27
  • Section 3 – Cromwell Place to Silver Street (inc. B1192 junction) / five evenings from Wednesday, November 1
  • Section 4 – Silver Street to Park Lane / three evenings from Wednesday, November 8

* The above dates are subject to change as some of the operations are weather dependent.

A highways spokesperson said: “Several sections of the A153 we’ll be working on are at the end of their serviceable life and others are very near to that point. As a result, we’ll be resurfacing and reconstructing the road to make it safer and provide drivers with a smoother journey.

“We encourage residents of each area to allow more time when planning journeys as access to individual properties and businesses may be delayed while the construction process passes by.

“We apologise in advance for any disruption caused by the works and are asking those affected to remain patient as any short-term inconvenience will be greatly outweighed by the long-term benefits.”
