Lincolnshire County Council plan 3 weeks of road closures and diversions from April 2 to allow Lincoln footpath to be restored

Work to restore a path which is showing signs of wear is set to go ahead next month with road closures and diversions to be put in place.

Newport’s footpath from Broadway to Longdales Road in Lincoln will be undergoing three weeks of improvements, which Lincolnshire’s executive councillor for highways and transport Richard Davies (Con) says “will make a big difference for pedestrians in the area”.

From Tuesday (April 2) there will be a week-long southbound road closure with no access to Newport from Longdales Road to Riseholme Roundabout.

From Wednesday, April 10 until the end of the project, there will be two-way traffic signals near the site.

Diversions will be in place via Longdales Road, Nettleham Road, Broadway, and Newport.

“Because of the location, there will inevitably be some disruption while we carry out this important improvement project, but we’ll do everything we can to keep this to a minimum,” Coun Davies added.

“In the meantime, I’d like to thank everyone affected for their patience and would encourage people who regularly travel along Newport to leave extra time for the journeys once our works start.”
