As part of a multi-million pound road re-surfacing project the A607 Brook Street and Brownlow Street will be closed from 6pm to midnight for five days, starting tonight (April 20).
The work has been funded by part of Lincolnshire County Council’s allocation of £5.4 million from the Department for Transport under the Government’s pothole fund, with £450,000 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 thin 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 A607 Brook Street, Manthorpe Road, High Road, Honnington Road, A153 Sleaford Road, Willoughby Road, B6403 High Dyke, A52 Cold Harbour to Somerby Roundabout, A52 Somerby Hill, Bridge End Road, A52 London Road, Wharf Road, Sankt Augustin Way, Barrowby Road and terminating at North Street and vice versa. The route is suitable for all vehicles.
