Two months of night closures for Wragby Road repairs

There will be eight weeks of night closures to repair a busy Lincoln road.

Wragby Road will be repaired in two phases, with workers splitting the road into east and west sections.

From Monday, July 1 Wragby Road East will be closed from 7pm to 5am the next day for three weeks.

There will be a diversion in place through the A158, B1202, A631, A46, A158 and vice versa.

Larger vehicles will also be diverted through the A158, B1202, A631, B1225, A46, A158 and vice versa.

When that work is complete, Wragby Road West is the next in line for overnight repairs for the following five weeks from Monday, July 22.

Drivers in the second phase will be diverted through to Greetwell Road and onto the Outer Circle Road and vice versa.

All work and timings are subject to favourable weather conditions.

Councillor Richard Davies, executive member for highways at Lincolnshire County Council, said: “Several sections of Wragby Road, specifically east of the roundabout and west of the Ruskin Avenue junction, are nearing the end of their serviceable life.

“As a result, we’ll be carrying out eight weeks of improvement works that will see the carriageway in these areas rebuilt.

“We’ll be doing everything we can to keep disruption to a minimum, including using temporary two-way traffic signals instead of closures whenever possible and maintaining local access.

“These works follow on from last year’s improvements to Wragby Road, Wolsey Way and Bunkers Hill, which included road resurfacing, along with drainage and junction improvements.

“Once complete, not only will this scheme will help keep the area’s road network up and running, but they’ll also mean smoother and safer journeys for everyone traveling along Wragby Road.”
