Cllr Richard Davies, the Executive Member for Highways, expressed his delight at the commencement of these schemes, emphasising the substantial positive impact on the local community.
"When we rebuild footpaths, there’s naturally going to be some disruption because of the nature of the work. By putting these schemes together, we can get twice the work done for the inconvenience of one job.
“What that will mean is that, when complete, these works will make a significant difference to this part of Skegness and will improve the footpaths for everyone who uses them."
To reduce inconvenience, both projects will run from 7.30am to 5.30pm, with possible weekend work.
Burgh Road will be enhanced with temporary lights, requiring no diversion.
Churchill Avenue will temporarily close, with a signed diversion along Burgh Road, St Mary's Road, Beacon Park Drive, and vice versa.
