Longdales Road evening road closures from next week

Drivers in uphill Lincoln will face four evenings of road closures from next week as part of the improvement works to Longdales Road.

The carriageway resurfacing works began on Tuesday, April 23 under a 24/7 eastbound road closure in place with the exception of the final two days of work. The road remains open to westbound traffic.

The final four evenings of improvement works will be carried out from 7pm to midnight on Friday, May 3, Tuesday, May 7, Wednesday, May 8 and Thursday, May 9. This change has been made to minimise the overall impact on the road network and residents living in the area.

On these evenings a full road closure will be in place from 7pm to 6am to allow the newly laid asphalt suitable time to harden.

The diversion route will be via Nettleham Road/A15 Lincoln Bypass/Riseholme Road and vice versa.

The final daytime Longdales Road (eastbound) and Broadway road closure will be on Thursday, May 2. From then no more daytime road closures will be in place on Longdales Road and Broadway as part of these works.
