Kirton roads to be resurfaced in £100,000 new scheme





Highways bosses are promising ‘pothole free roads that will have many years of life in them’ after a new £100,000 new scheme.

Lincolnshire County Council has announced that it will be closing roads around Kirton for six nights from Tuesday, July 2, while it completes the re-surfacing project.

The works will be carried out at Willington Road, from High Street/London Road junction to outside10C Willington Road, and at High Street/London Road,from outside 26 High Street to the outside of The Black Bull Pub.

Assistant director of Highways, Karen Cassar said: “The works will cost nearly £100,000 to deliver and once in place will mean a very noticeable improvement to Willington Road, High Street and London Road.

“Works of this nature take some time to carry out because of the sheer amount of materials that are removed, groundworks that happen and then the layers of road that are replaced.

“Ultimately, these few nights of overnight working will deliver pothole free roads that will have many years of life in them to come.”

The works will begin on Tuesday, July 2 and have a planned works programme of six nights, subject to suitable weather. Working times will be between 8pm to 6am except on July 4 when working times will be from 10.30pm to 06.00 because of the General Election voting.

Roads will be open to traffic during the day.

The signed diversion route for the Willington Road section using like-for-like roads will be; B1192 Willington Eoad to B1391 Donington Road to B1391 Ralphs Lane to B1397 London Road to B1397 Boston Road to B1397 High Street to B1192 Willington Road and vice versa.

For the High Street and London Road section, the diversion route using like-for-like roads will be: B1397 London Road to B1397 Boston Road to B1397 Spalding Road to A17 from East Drain to Station Road roundabout to A16 Spalding Road to A16 Peterborough Road to A16 Spalding Road to C758 Station Road to B1397 High Street and vice versa.

Ms Cassar added: “During the planned dates for the work there will be ‘No Parking at Anytime’ restrictions in place on the sections of Willington Road, High Street and London Road.

“And due to the nature of the works, we will need to use equipment that can be noisy. Because of this, all of our contractor’s equipment are fitted with noise suppressants and will not be left running when not in use. We will try our utmost to carry out the noisiest elements of the works as early as possible to minimise any possible noise disruption. We will also lift the diversion at the end of each shift which will mean that the roads will be open outside of working times to help cut down the amount of traffic flow disruption.

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone effected by these works for their patience and understanding while we deliver the improvements to the area.”
