Highways chiefs are poised to begin a programme of vital repairs to some of Grantham’s deteriorating roads.

And motorists are being warned to expect some delays and diversions as the maintenance works, which will straddle the summer, get underway.

A spokesman for Lincolnshire County Council said that vital repairs would be carried out to Inner Street, Old Wharf Road, Sandon Road/Stonebridge Road, and Castlegate.

The works will take place in late July and early August.

He said: “Resurfacing work is essential to extend the life of these stretches of road, which have been deteriorating and require repairs.”

Works will start on Inner Street on July 30 and are expected to be completed by August 3.

Old Wharf Road will be closed to vehicles for one day on August 1 to allow resurfacing to take place. However, pedestrian access will still be available.

The road surface at the junction of Sandon Road and Stonebridge Road will be repaired overnight on August 7.

Sandon Road will be closed temporarily overnight on August 7, with traffic signals being used to control traffic between Stonebridge Road and Beacon Lane.

On August 6, patching will take place on Castlegate.

The spokesman said: “As Castlegate is part of a one way system, traffic will be diverted to allow the works to go ahead.

He added: “These dates are subject to change if unforeseen circumstances arise.

“Please use alternative routes and allow extra time for your journey.
