Longdales Road closures begin after Easter

Drivers in uphill Lincoln will face two weeks of road closures and diversions as works resume on Longdales Road.

The carriageway resurfacing works will start on Tuesday, April 23. These will take place during the day under a 24/7 eastbound road closure with the exception of the final two days of work. The road will remain open to westbound traffic.

The final two evenings of work will be carried out under a full daytime road closure from 8am to 6pm. This will allow the final surface course to be laid and road markings reinstated.

The diversion route for the one-way closure and two full closures will be via Nettleham Road/A15 Lincoln Bypass/Riseholme Road, and vice versa.

Ravendale Road Drive will also be closed during the full road closure to allow a safe working space. A local diversion will be in place.
