Greetwell Road works extended to allow time for additional improvements

21 April 2017

The current eastbound lane closure on Greetwell Road, from the mini-roundabout south of Wickes to Greetwell Hollow, is being extended so that additional resurfacing on the mini-roundabout and more complicated utility diversion works can be carried out.

Access will be maintained throughout the works

The improvement works, which also include increasing westbound capacity at the second mini roundabout south of Wickes and improving safety and drainage at Greetwell Hollow, are now expected to be complete on Sunday 14 May, subject to reasonable weather conditions.

The signed diversion route for the closure will continue to be via Outer Circle Road, Wragby Road, Hawthorne Road, Croft Lane and Church Lane. Road users are asked to adhere to the diversion route.

Greetwell Road will remain open to westbound traffic into Lincoln, except for week commencing 7 May, when full night-time closures of Greetwell Road will be in place between 8pm and 5am to complete surfacing works. These night closures replace those previously planned for week commencing 24 April.

As part of the extended works, the full road closure of Greetwell Fields (locally known as the bunny run), which connects Greetwell Road to St Augustine Road, will remain in place for the duration of the works.

Access to businesses and residences will be maintained throughout the works; however, the council apologises for any inconvenience caused.

These additional improvements have been made possible thanks to careful project management that has allowed them to be carried out within the original budget.

The Greetwell Road improvements are part of Lincoln Eastern Bypass preparatory works and will prepare Greetwell Road, south of the mini-roundabout near Wickes, for an increase in traffic once the bypass is complete. When the bypass is opened in 2019, a new roundabout that connects Greetwell Road to the Bypass will be opened.
