A153 near Lincoln closed after big sinkhole forms

The condition of the road has deteriorated

A big sink hole on the A153 near Lincoln is causing disruption between Tattershall and Billinghay with repair work currently underway to try and fix it.

The A153 was initially closed between Tattershall and Billinghay on April 9, but it re-opened later that day with temporary traffic lights.

However, it was closed fully again on Tuesday, April 14 after the condition of the road deteriorated.

No date has been given as to when the road is expected to re-open again.

Tony Storr posted in The Lincolnite’s Traffic & Roadworks Facebook group on Wednesday morning advising people to take note of the diversions there. He added that there is no way of getting through to Chapel Hill.

Councillor Richard Davies, executive member for highways at Lincolnshire County Council, said: “We’re sorry that the A153 is currently closed between Tattershall and Billinghay due to a partially collapsed culvert just south of Tattershall Bridge.

“Crews will be on site this week to make repairs so we can reopen the road safely. Please use alternative routes if you’re making an essential journey. Thank you for bearing with us.”
