A project to enhance some of Lincolnshire’s most used roads will get underway this April.

A new road surface will be laid on seven roads in the county – in Lincoln Market Rasen and Spilsby areas.

The project will start with the A46/A158 Nettleham Road roundabout in Lincoln on Monday 18 April. These works are expected to be completed by 30 April, and then the following roads will be improved in order.

A631 – Market Rasen

A158 Partney roundabout – Spilsby

A158 Burgh Le Marsh roundabout – Spilsby

Subject to weather conditions all of these roads will be upgraded by August 2016.

Councillor Richard Davies, Executive Member for Highways, said: “We continuously monitor the condition of our county’s roads and make sure they are in a good condition for motorists to use. These are all busy routes with high traffic volumes and have deteriorated through wear and tear.

“We will completely remove the top layer of the roads and lay down new surfaces which will last for at least the next 20 years. There are more roads in Lincolnshire that we need to improve with this technique so we are improving those most in need first, before starting another programme later this year.”
