Lincolnshire A road to close for resurfacing

This story is over

A Lincolnshire road will be closed next week for resurfacing.

The A153 at Donna’s Corner, Tattershall Bridge near Coningsby will be fully closed while the road is repaired.

The road will be closed from Monday, October 24 to Sunday, October 30.

The works will involve deep structural repairs and the placing of a metal reinforcement mesh within the road, and then the final resurfacing.

It will then be closed overnight between 7pm to 6am, from Monday, October 31 to Sunday, November 6, while the resurfacing is completed, and will be reopened to traffic during the daytime.

Steve Brooks, senior project leader for Lincolnshire County Council said: “This is the second, and final stage of a two stage process to repair this road; having done the stabilisation work beneath the surface earlier this year.

“This section of road had deteriorated as the land had settled beneath it.

“Earlier this year we injected a resin beneath the surface to compact and stabilise the foundations.

“This second stage will remove the failed, undulating surface and rebuild the road, providing a much improved running surface for many years to come.

“We will do our best to maintain access for residents and businesses throughout the closure, but due to the nature of the works, there may be occasional delays.

“A fully signed diversion route will be in place for the duration of all closures, and we’d ask that drivers allow extra time for their journeys.”
