A158 road works set for next month

Drivers in Horncastle will face road closures and diversions due to improvement works on the A158.

The works, which include carriageway resurfacing, junction and traffic signal improvements and construction of a new shared footway/cycleway, will continue on until the end of October.

Permanent two-way temporary traffic signals will be in place on the A158 throughout the works, along with road closures on West Street and the B1191, preventing access onto the A158.

Also, no access to West Street or Langton Hill will be possible via the A158 during this closure.

The resurfacing element of the works will take place towards the end of October for two weeks.

The A158 will be closed between the hours of 7pm and 6am, Monday to Friday, for two weeks.

As part of the road closure, a signed diversion route will be in place. Dates, diversion routes and other traffic management information will be made available closer to the resurfacing works.

Once the A158 improvements are complete, the final phase of these Horncastle works will commence. This will see access into a new housing development built, along with the construction of a shared footway/cycleway into Langton Hill that will connect to the existing path.

Traffic management for the final phase of works will include a full road closure from Langton Hill to its junction with the B1191 (with a local diversion and residential and business access maintained).
