This story is over

Drivers in a Lincoln village will face almost a fortnight of diversions and a road closure due to roadworks starting today (April 1).

Worn-out sections of the A1500 Tillbridge Lane in Sturton by Stow will be repaired so the road can be surface dressed during the summer.

The road will be closed for 12 days. The £160,000 project is due to begin on Monday, April 1. It is expected to be completed by Friday, April 12.

The road will be closed for the duration of the project. Traffic will be diverted via the A156, A57, A46, A15 and A1500.

A highways spokesperson previously said: “This road is set to be surface dressed later this year, which will help extend its life. However, before we do that, we need to go in and repair any potholes or other defects.

“We apologise for any inconvenience caused and will aim to get the road re-opened as soon as possible.”
