Reconstruction works to Godsey Lane in Market Deeping planned for late February

Diversion route Godsey Lane

Works to rebuild sections of the C462 in Market Deeping will start next month.

Cllr Richard Davies, executive member for highways, said: “This section of Godsey Lane in Market Deeping is starting to crumble and fail, so we’ve taken the decision to rebuild it now before it deteriorates any more. 

“As part of these improvements, we’ll be reconstructing the section of road between the Tesco mini-roundabout to the Towngate junction using over 200 tonnes of tarmac and other road-building materials.

“While on site with the road closed, we’ll also be taking the opportunity to clean out the drainage system and replace some failed gully covers.”

Night-time road closure will be in place on Godsey Lane from 6pm to midnight (weekday evenings only)

Cllr Davies added: “We'll be doing everything we can to keep disruption to a minimum throughout the project, including maintaining access for residents and emergency vehicles during working hours.

“And also, any wanting to report a pothole or highways fault via FixMyStreet, either online or on the app.”
