To enable improvements to traffic signals and realignment of the Harrowby Road and St Catherine’s Road junction, planned for summer 2016, tree felling in the area will start on Sunday, February 14.

Lincolnshire County Council say the felling is necessary to make room for works to improve the junction. Eleven trees will need to be removed, ahead of the bird nesting season.

These are six trees on the south side of Stonebridge Road, one tree on the north side of Beacon Lane, three trees on the south side of Beacon Lane, and one tree in the traffic island at the junction of St Catherine’s Road and Harrowby Road.

An LCC spokesperson added: “It is hoped that all tree works will be completed within three to five days, weather permitting.”

There will be a temporary footpath closure on the south side of Stonebridge Road and a diversion for pedestrians will be in place.

The existing permanent four-way traffic signals will be turned off and temporary four-way traffic signals will be used for the majority of the works.

This is to ensure the safety of the public, road users and the workforce.

Three-way temporary traffic signals will be in operation on Sunday, February 14, to fell one big tree in the traffic island of St Catherine’s Road and Harrowby Road.

The county council apologises for any inconvenience this may cause.
