Highway works programmes

We routinely carry out inspections and works programmes to maintain our highways in Lincolnshire. These include:

  • Road patching, resurfacing and markings
  • Street lighting
  • Footway improvements
  • Drainage improvements
  • Traffic signals
  • Bridges, structures and safety barriers

You can use our interactive map to find details about the works we have planned throughout the year. We update the map every month.

You can filter the results by types of works, start date, electoral division and town or parish.

All timescales are variable and subject to weather conditions.

Grass cutting programme

We cut the grass verges on all rural roads in Lincolnshire. 

All our dates are provisional and may change depending on the rate at which the grass grows.

Verge cut Dates
First cut 6 April to 30 May
Second cut 14 June to 18 July
Third cut 6 September to 10 October

Verges in built-up areas

Some parish, town and district councils cut the grass verges in built-up areas. Their operations may not coincide with our programme.

We contribute to the minimum requirement of three cuts. Some councils choose to carry out additional cuts at their own discretion.

For further details, contact the relevant council.
