Week of road closures and disruption set for Welton

Drivers in a village near Lincoln will face over a week of road closures and disruption due to roadworks starting next week.

Repairs will start next week on Lincoln Road in Welton. The first phase of the £150,000 project to replace worn-out sections of road will take place under four consecutive daytime road closures from 7.30am-5pm, starting on Tuesday, August 20.

People are being encouraged to plan ahead including pupils collecting GCSE results from William Farr School. The school is making alternative access arrangements for pupils collecting their results on Thursday, August 22.

The works will then pause over the bank holiday weekend followed by two evenings of night-time works from 7.30pm-6.30am, on Tuesday and Wednesday, August 27-28.

The diversion route for the road closures will be via Lincoln Road/Honeyholes Lane/Ryland Road, and vice versa.

Mark Heaton, programme leader – surfacing and patching, said: “Sections of the route are nearing the end of their life and it’s important they are replaced to ensure the road remains safe to use.

“We apologise for any inconvenience caused by the works, and would encourage people to use alternative routes where possible.”
