Upcoming disruption as Wragby Road works are stepped up

Three-way traffic signals and night-time closures are planned

Drivers in Lincoln will face three-way traffic signals and night-time closures as Wragby Road roundabout is widened as part of bypass works over the coming months.

Works to widen the roundabout are now underway with the following traffic management in place:

  • Night-time three-way traffic signals from 6.30pm-6am between September 9 to 20
  • Three-way traffic signals 24/7 between September 23 to 27
  • Roundabout narrowed to single lane between October 6 to 18
  • Full night-time closure from 6.30pm to 6am between October 28 to November 8
  • Night-time three-way traffic signals from 6.30pm to 6am between November 11 to 22

The diversion route for the night-time closures will be via A46 to Market Rasen to the A631 to the B1202 to the A158, and vice versa.

Councillor Richard Davies, Executive Member for Highways at Lincolnshire County Council, said: “These works are essential for adding a new leg to and widening Wragby Road roundabout as part of the new bypass. These works will inevitably cause some disruption, particularly during the week of 24/7 three-way signals.

“Because of that, we strongly encourage people to stagger their journey times, consider alternative routes and plan ahead for delays if using the A158 Wragby Road roundabout.”

As previously reported, people can now drive on the first of four new roundabouts for the Lincoln Eastern Bypass. The B1188 Lincoln Road, Branston, roundabout is substantially complete and open to motorists, but final surfacing works will need to be undertaken later in the project.

The 7.5km Lincoln Eastern Bypass project is part-funded by a £50m Central Government capital grant.
