Evening closures of North Street in Grantham this week
Lincolnshire County Council have announced that the A607 North Street will be closed from 6pm to midnight for three days, starting tonight (Monday, April 27).
It is part of a multi-million pound project to replace the surface on various principal roads across the county.
The work has been funded by part of Lincolnshire County Council’s allocation of £5.4million from the Department for Transport under the Government’s pothole fund, with £450k being used for roads in Grantham.
The project targets sections of roads which are reaching the end of their operational life and replaces the top layer before they deteriorate further requiring full road reconstruction.
Project Manager Tim Mawson said: “This proactive approach to managing the road network is proving very successful in the areas where we have already replaced this top surface. It shows Lincolnshire County Council’s commitment to trying to maintain the condition of our road network. Conducting the work in the late evening will minimise disruption to motorists.”
During these closures traffic will be diverted via the B1174 Watergate Southwards, the A52 Wharf Road, A52 Sankt Augustin Way, Barrowby Road and terminating at North Street and vice versa. The route is suitable for all vehicles. The works are scheduled for three days – depending on weather.
