Daytime closures of A1111 for four weeks of resurfacing works

Resurfacing works lasting four weeks will be carried out on the A1111 in Bilsby, with the road to be closed during the daytime.

The repairs will start on Monday, October 2, on Sutton Road and Alford Road.

Work will be carried out in two phases, with the works on Sutton Road, between the junction with Thurlby Rd to Furze Hill Cottages, lasting approximately three weeks and the works on Alford Road taking one week.

A full road closure will be in place from 6am to 6pm on weekdays and 8am to 6pm on weekends for the duration of the works.

The signed diversion routes for the closure will be via the A1104 (East Street, Beesby Road, Alford Road and High Street) to Victoria Road to the A52 to the A1111 (Alford Road and Sutton Road).

Local access will be maintained throughout the works; however, access may be limited depending on where work is taking place.

Affected residents will be notified in advance so they can plan accordingly.

Councillor Richard Davies, responsible for highways at Lincolnshire County Council, said: “As part of these works, we will be resurfacing sections of the A1111 along Alford Road and Sutton Road, which will involve replacing the road surface that is nearing the end of its serviceable life.

“We ask for your continued patience while these works are carried out. Not only will the road’s life be extended, but these improvements will also ensure a better ride quality for motorists and increased safety for all road users.”
