Drivers are being warned that road resurfacing works will result in the closure of the A159, Laughton for two weeks.

Work to replace sections of the carriageway between Blyton and Laughton Wood will begin on Monday, June 5.

The project is expected to take two-weeks, with the road closed throughout for safety. A signed diversion will be in place, directing traffic via the A159, A18, A15 and A631.

Mark Heaton, programme leader for surfacing and patching at Lincolnshire County Council, said: “It’s essential we repair these sections of the road to ensure it remains safe for people to use.

“Although the road will be closed, people will still be able to reach the local polling stations for the General Election on 8 June.

“However, they may need to use an alternative route so please allow extra time for your journey.

“We apologise for any inconvenience caused.”
