Road closure to fix B1189 near Lincoln

Major resurfacing works are set to take place for five weeks on the B1189 in Metheringham and Blankney Barff.

The works will commence on Monday, October 15 and will last for five weeks. Works will be carried out from 8am – 6pm, Monday to Friday and the road closure will be in place for working hours only.

The signed diversion route for eastbound traffic will be via the B1188 to Scopwick to the B1191 via Kirkby Green and back onto the B1189. For the westbound traffic, the diversion will be the eastbound diversion in reverse.

Access to the train station and also the Moorlands Trading Estate will be maintained at all times and will be accessible directly from Metheringham or via the diversion route. Pedestrian access will also be maintained as much as possible.

Councillor Richard Davies of Lincolnshire County Council Highways said: “As part of these works, we will be resurfacing parts of the B1189 in Metheringham and Blankney Barff to replace road material that is nearing the end of its serviceable life.

“We intend to do everything we can to minimise disruption. However, due to the nature of the works, there is likely to be some disruption so we ask for your continued patience while these works are carried out.”
