This story is over

Motorists are being warned of three weeks of disruption and overnight closures for resurfacing works on the A151 Winsover Road in Spalding.

Work will start on Monday, February 19, lasting for three weeks until Saturday, March 10, subject to reasonable weather conditions.

Resurfacing will be carried out at Carrington Road to the level crossing from 7am to 6pm, including weekends.

Temporary traffic signals will be in place for most of the work, with the exception of two short periods of night-time closures from 6pm to 6am when the final surface is laid.

The area east of the level crossing up to the junction of Station Road and Swan Street will be resurfaced over seven evenings, including weekends, from 6pm to 6am, starting on Thursday, March 1.

The road will be opened as usual outside of working hours.

Signed diversion routes for the closure will be west out of Spalding on Bourne Road and A151 to Bourne, south from Bourne on the A15, the A1175/A16 east, to the Springfields roundabout then take the A151 west along West Elloe Avenue through Spalding back to Winsover Road and vice versa.

Councillor Richard Davies, responsible for highways at Lincolnshire County Council, said: “As part of these improvements, we will be resurfacing parts of Winsover Road to replace road material that is nearing the end of its serviceable life.

“Due to the nature of the works, there will inevitably be some temporary disruptions, however we’ll be doing everything we can to minimise disruption – for example, planning a majority of the works to take place during the daytime under temporary traffic lights and arranging for any necessary road closures to take place overnight.

“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 smoother journeys and increased safety for all road users.”
