Seven weeks of roadworks set for Lincolnshire village

Drivers in a Lincolnshire village will face seven weeks of disruption and road closures due to works starting next month.

Improvements to the B1225 in Ludford near Market Rasen will start on Monday, March 4.

The total programme of works is expected to last for seven weeks (Monday to Friday) subject to reasonable weather conditions.

The daytime resurfacing works will be carried out to replace worn out carriageway on B1225 Caistor High Street from the Sixhills Lane/Ludford road crossroads to the A157 junction south of Ludford.

A full road closure will be in place from 7.30am to 6pm each weekday. There will be two-way temporary traffic signals in place in the evening and over weekends.

The signed diversion route for the south-bound traffic during the closure will be via the A631 towards South Elkington onto the A157 and through Burgh-on-Bain before rejoining the B1225. Vice versa for north-bound traffic.

Access for residents, farmers and delivery vehicles within the affected area will be maintained as far as reasonably practicable. Access for emergency vehicles will also be maintained at all times.

Executive Member for Highways at Lincolnshire County Council Richard Davies said: “As part of these works, we will be resurfacing parts of the B1225 in Ludford to replace road surface that is nearing the end of its serviceable life.

“We intend to do everything we can to minimise disruption, including doing our best to maintain access for residents, farmers and delivery vehicles during the daytime closure.

“These improvements will make travelling on the B1225 a safer and more comfortable journey, so we ask for your continued patience while these works are carried out.”
