Throckenholt road will be closed while Lincolnshire County Council completes £400,000 repair

Work will start next week on a £400,000 repair to a drought damaged road.

Lincolnshire County Council has announced that it will be closing the B1166 South Eau bank, Throckenholt, from Monday, February 19, for almost three weeks while staff rebuild the road.

The road will be closed from west of French Drove to east of Lutton Gate with a diversion in place while the work is ongoing.

Karen Cassar, assistant director for highways, said: “It will cost approximately £400,000 to complete the works, but it will mean a very big improvement to the area.

“This section of road has been pushed out of shape because of drought damage which has caused the material underneath to move.

“Our crew will dig out the necessary underpinning and rebuild it to improve the road for everyone.

“We have to put a full road closure in place, because of the nature of the work. It will mean some element of disruption while the work is going on, but we will do our best to complete the programme of work as quickly as we can.

“I would like to thank everyone effected for their patience while we get this road improvement programme finished and South Eau Bank in a better state for road users.”

Works are due to end on Thursday, March 7.

The works will begin on Monday, February 19 and have a planned end date of Thursday, March 7 subject to suitable weather. Work on site will happen from 07.30 to 17.00.

A road closure is required for the duration of the works.
