Lane closures set for streetlights work in Boston

Work will begin later this month.

A number of street lighting columns along Sleaford Road, Boston, are set to be replaced later this month.

The columns are located between Wyberton Bridge rail crossing and South Parade.

Work is due to start on Wednesday, February 28 and is expected to be completed by Friday, March 16.

To reduce disruption, work will only take place between 9am and 3.30pm so that peak hours aren’t affected.

Traffic management measures, including manually-controlled temporary lights, stop/go boards and lane closures, will be used as and when required throughout the works.

A highways spokesperson at Lincolnshire County Council said: “The existing columns are reaching the end of their life, and are showing signs of corrosion below ground level, so we need to go in and replace them.

“Despite our best efforts, there will inevitably be some disruption, and we apologise in advance for any inconvenience caused.”
