BREAKING NEWS: Council announces night time work on county roads


Lincolnshire County Council has announced night time resurfacing work starts on the A17, A57 and A15 in July.

Over the next few weeks, the council will carry out surface dressing on sections of the three main routes.

The work will take place at night between 8pm and 6am, starting on Monday 7th July and, subject to weather conditions, completed by Tuesday 22nd July.

Temporary road closures will be in place at all sites except the works on the A57, which will be open to traffic under a convoy system.

Local diversions will be signposted.

This is the current schedule for the project:

A17 (Cranwell Flights): Closed from B1429 junction to A15 Holdingham roundabout between 7th July – 10th July, and 15th – 16th July

A17 (Fosdyke): Closed from Sutterton roundabout to A151 junction between 9th July – 13th July, and 17th July – 18th July

A17 (East Heckington) and A17 (Asgarby): Closed from A15 Holdingham roundabout to A52 Bicker Bar roundabout between 11th July – 14th July, and on 19th July

A15 (South of Caenby Corner): Closed from Ingham Lane to Caenby Corner roundabout, between 13th July – 15th July, and on 20th July

A57 Burton/ Saxilby/ Broadholme): Work will be completed under convoy system. It will take place in three sections from the A46 roundabout to Broadholme, between 14th – 17th July

A15 (North of Caenby Corner): Closed between Caenby Corner roundabout and B1205 junction between 16th July – 18th July, and on 22nd July.

Shaun Butcher, network and development manager at Lincolnshire County Council, said:

“We’ve carefully planned this scheme to minimise disruption, and we’ll be working on a number of sites simultaneously to get everything completed as quickly as possible.

“The roads are in good condition but by surface dressing them now we can extend their life by several years.

“Surface dressing provides the road with a waterproof, high friction surface, which prevents potholes from forming.

“We’ve already put advance warning signs up to alert people to the work, and local diversions will be in place throughout.
