Double footpath improvement for Skegness

Skegness schemes

Two schemes happening this month will make a big difference for the area.

Cllr Richard Davies, executive member for highways, said: “I am delighted that we can get both these schemes underway for the people of Skegness. 

“When we rebuild footpaths, there’s naturally going to be some disruption because of the nature of the work. By putting these schemes together, we are able to get twice the work done for the inconvenience of one job.  

“What that will mean is that, when complete, these works will make a really big difference to this part of Skegness and will improve the footpaths for everyone who uses them.” 

Location of works

The works will be carried out at Burgh Road and Churchill Avenue, Skegness.  

Dates and times

The works at Burgh Road will begin on Saturday, February 10 and have a planned end date of Saturday, March 16, subject to suitable weather. The hours of work will be from 07.30 to 17.30 Monday to Friday with some weekend work possible.  

The works at Churchill Avenue will begin on Saturday, February 10 with a planned end date of Sunday, February 18, subject to suitable weather. The hours of work will be from 07.30 to 17.30 including weekends. 

Traffic management

Burgh Road will be completed under temporary traffic lights with no diversion required.  

Churchill Avenue will need a road closure and signed diversion in place. This will be: Burgh Road, St Marys Road, Beacon Park Drive and vice versa. 

Cllr Davies added: “These works will cost a total of around £152,000 to complete and will extend the life of the footpaths over many years.  

“I would like to thank everyone effected for their understanding and patience while we get these improvements carried out as quickly as possible.”
