Road closure will be in place while expert crew on-site

Bridge Street in Horncastle, between High Street and West Street, is going to be closed from Tuesday May 9 until Friday June 9 whilst essential bridge works are carried out.

Cllr Richard Davies, executive member for Highways said: “What we are doing in Horncastle is specialist work to replace the ageing parts of the bridge.

“These works are happening as preventative maintenance to renew the waterproofing of the concrete deck, which will extend the useable life of the bridge.

“We will also be carrying out other maintenance whilst the road is closed such as joint replacement, repainting of the metalwork and general repairs.

“Because this is a bridge, and normally takes a lot of traffic across it, we simply can’t have anything other than a road closure whilst the work is on-going to ensure the safety of the crew and road users.

“We will ensure that pedestrians have a safe route through the works and I would like to thank everyone affected by this programme of work for their understanding and patience whilst we carry out these repairs.”

Dates and times

The works will begin on Tuesday May 9 and continue until Friday June 9. The scheduled end date could be extended due to unforeseen circumstances.

Diversion route

The diversion route will be via High Street, A153 Bull Ring, A158 Jubilee Way, West Street and vice versa.

Location of works

The works will be carried out on Bridge Street in Horncastle over the River Bain, between High Street and West Street.
