This story is over

A number of 40-year-old roads in a village near Lincoln will be given a new touch-up.

The roads in Sudbrooke, which are nearing the end of their lifespan, are due to be resurfaced by the end of March.

The first phase of work will start on Monday, February 5 and last five days, focussing on Holme Drive, Elm Drive, Beech Close and Oak Close.

These works will be followed by a second phase, which starts in March, affecting Manor Drive, Sibthorpe Drive, Courtfield Close, Chestnut Drive, Chestnut Close, The Paddock, St Edwards Drive and Cedar close.

Councillor Richard Davies, executive member for highways at Lincolnshire County Council, said: “These roads are going to be rebuilt with better materials and to a better standard – it should make a real difference.

“This is a big job, and inevitably there will be disruption, so we ask residents and motorists for their patience – the end result will be worth the short-term inconvenience.”

A series of road closures and local diversions will be in place for the duration of the works.

Lincolnshire County Council say that all timings are subject to weather conditions and unforeseen circumstances.
