Drivers in Lincoln will face four weeks of lane closures due to temporary works to replace traffic lights.

The county council will begin work to replace the traffic lights controlling vehicle access to the Brayford Pool campus off Ropewalk on Monday, February 4.

There is already disruption in the area as the Brayford Level crossing is shut due to ongoing work on a new footbridge, with the closure recently extended due to “poor ground conditions”.

A highways spokesperson at Lincolnshire County Council previously said: “The lights are reaching the end of their life so we need to replace them.

“The new signals will be easier to maintain and much more energy efficient, saving on annual running costs.

“There will be some disruption while the work is carried out, and we apologise for any inconvenience caused in advance.

“We’d advise motorists to leave additional time for their journeys and use alternative routes where possible.”

During this time the University of Lincoln car parks will be open as usual. However, vehicles leaving the campus via Ropewalk will only be able to turn left towards the High Street/Tentercroft Street.

Access to the south entrance will only be possible by turning left from the direction of the tank roundabout on Tritton Road.
