Seven Boston roads closing for reconstruction works

Drivers in Boston will face delays and disruption when rebuilding work begins on seven roads from this month.

The project is expected to cost around £183,000 and will see seven residential roads, which are reaching the end of their life, fully reconstructed between January and March.

Each road will be closed while its carriageway is fixed.

The road closure dates are as follows:

  • Burton Close – January 21-25
  • Standish Road – January 21-25
  • Leverett Road – January 23-25
  • Alfred Street – January 24-25
  • Muster Roll Lane – January 28-February 2
  • Rose Place – January 30-February 4
  • Woodville Road – March 11-18

Executive Member for Highways at Lincolnshire County Council, Councillor Richard Davies, said: “We have a number of residential roads across the county that are reaching the end of their life.

“As opposed to just filling in the potholes, we’re spending around £1m on rebuilding them. That way they should last a lot longer and require less maintenance.

“There will be some local disruption during the improvements, but the short-term inconvenience will be far outweighed by the long-term benefits.”

Drivers in Boston are also facing delays this week due to emergency gas works being carried out in the area.
