Woodhall Spa drivers face six week resurfacing scheme

The works will last for six weeks

Drivers in Woodhall Spa will face road closures, diversions and traffic disruption due to six weeks of resurfacing works starting later this month.

Work to resurface sections of carriageway and improve footways, drainage and accesses on the B1191, between Iddesleigh Road and Tower Close, will start on Monday, October 22.anderby creek

The first week of works, between Monday, October 22 to Friday, October 26, will be carried out under temporary traffic signals from 8am to 8pm.

The remainder of the project will be carried out under a full road closure of the B1191 and Kirkby Lane from 8am to 8pm Monday to Friday.

This includes approximately four days of resurfacing works on Kirkby Lane and around two days on Iddesleigh Road.

Temporary two-way traffic signals will also be in use from 10am to 6pm to allow works to be carried out on the following Saturdays: October 27 and November 3, 10 and 17.

Key points of the works

  • The road closure element of the scheme will not begin until the B1191 road closure necessary for the A158 improvement works in Horncastle is lifted.
  • Temporary traffic signals will be in use on the B1191, between 8pm and 8am, Monday to Friday, when required.
  • Parking restrictions will also be in place on sections of the B1191 and Kirkby Lane while the contractor is working in those areas.
  • A8 bus users located within the extents of road closure are advised to use bus stops located west of Stanhope Avenue for the duration of the works.

Executive Member for Highways, Councillor Richard Davies, said: “These works are essential to the infrastructure of Woodhall Spa and will help keep the area moving in the future.

“We’ll be doing everything we can to minimise disruption, including carrying the works out during the day so residents aren’t disturbed late in the evening and maintaining access for residents, businesses, school buses, bin lorries and the National Express bus throughout the works.

“However, due to the nature of this project, there is still likely to be some disruption. That’s why we are encouraging road users to allow more time for journeys while these improvements are underway and to follow the signed diversion routes.”
