Latest road closures for Lincoln Eastern Bypass works

Watch out for the road closures and follow these diversions

Work on the Lincoln Eastern Bypass is in full flow and the project is past its midway point, but this also means there are ongoing road closures.

For the next 10 weekends Lincoln Road will be closed between the following days and hours. This is to allow contractors to carry out earthworks, kerbing, street lighting and other essential construction works along the road ahead of starting construction of the new bypass roundabout.

Lincoln Road will be closed:

  • 6am Saturday to 6pm Sunday on:
    • 6 to 7 July
    • 13 to 14 July
  • 6:30pm Friday to 6am Monday on:
    • 19 to 22 July
    • 26 to 29 July
    • 2 to 5 August
    • 9 to 12 August
    • 16 to 19 August
    • 30 August to 2 September
    • 6 to 9 September
    • 13 to 16 September

The diversion route for the closures will be via South Park Ave & South Park / St Catherines / A15 / B1178 / B1188, and vice versa.

County Councillor Richard Davies, executive member for highways, said: “By the end of these weekend closures on Lincoln Road, the new Lincoln Road roundabout will be 90% finished, with tie-ins to the current road complete.”

Hawthorn Road also remains fully closed until July 15 to allow for utilities diversion along the road and to build the footbridge.
