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

Below are the dates for Lincolnshire County Council'sour 2022-23 grass cutting programme. All dates are provisional and may change depending on the rate at which the grass grows.

All rural road verges are cut by us. Please be aware that some parish, town and district councils cut the verges in their built-up areas (urban) and not us (see list below). Their operations will not necessarily coincide with our grass cutting programme. Please contact the relevant council for further details on their grass cutting programme.

Verge cut Dates
First cut 25 April to 29 May
Second cut 13 June to 17 July
Third cut 5 September to 9 October

Verges in built-up areas

In the following locations, verges in built-up areas are cut on our behalf by the parish council or, where indicated, the district council. We contribute to the minimum requirement of three cuts, with some councils choosing to carry out additional cuts at their own discretion.

For further details, including the timing of these cuts, please contact the relevant council directly.
