The diversion route for the closure will be via A607 Lincoln Road to B1178 White Lane/Tower Lane, and vice versa.

Cllr Richard Davies, executive member for highways, said: "We're just about finished with all our works at the new Sleaford Road roundabout.

"All that's left is to lay the final layer of surfacing, paint road markings, install signage, topsoil and landscape, and carry out some other minor works ahead of inspecting the roundabout and all its approaches to make sure everything is to the quality we want and expect.

"We'll be doing our very best to complete all of this without using all six weekends, but whether we can or not will depend heavily on the weather cooperating with us."

The 7.5km Lincoln Eastern Bypass project is part-funded by a £50m Central Government capital grant and will improve Lincoln’s infrastructure, encourage growth, minimise traffic congestion and enhance the inter-city environment.
