A1031 road improvements at North Somercotes and near Grainthorpe to begin

19 October 2017

The road between Churchill Road and Lakeside Park, North Somercotes, is to be reconstructed and the existing footpath widened, with patching works also taking place near Grainthorpe.


Diversion will be in place during works

During the first week of the project, temporary traffic lights will be in place between Oasis Lakes and St Anne’s Avenue to protect the workforce whilst the footpath is widened.

Work is due to begin on Monday 23 October and is expected to take four weeks to complete.

At the same time, the A1031 Conisholme Road, Grainthorpe, will be closed for five days so failing sections of the road can be patched ahead of future surface dressing. The closure will be in place 24 hours a day, with the road due to be re-opened on Friday 27 October.

Then, on Monday 30 October, the A1031 will be closed between South Road and Lakeside Park, North Somercotes, to allow for the road to be reconstructed. This closure will be in place Monday to Friday, 9am to 6pm. The work is expected to last three weeks.

During both closures, traffic will be directed via the A1031, B1201, A16, A157, B1200, A1031 and vice versa. Local access will be maintained.

A highways spokesperson said:

“The section of road between Churchill Road and Lakeside Park has reached the end of its serviceable life. To prevent further deterioration we are going to rebuild it. We are also taking the opportunity to widen the footpath at the same time, to enhance the existing facility making it safer for the school children.

“At the same time, we’ll be patching failing sections of the road at Grainsthorpe so it can be surface dressed in the near future. That will extend the life of the road, keeping it safe.

“There is likely to be some disruption while the work is taking place, so we would advise that people leave additional time for their journeys and use alternative routes where possible.

“We apologise for any inconvenience caused.”
