Improved footpath and new bus stops planned for Ingoldmells on A52 / Skegness Road

9 October 2017

Improvement works near Beacon Medical Practice in Ingoldmells are to begin next month as part of the ongoing £5.7m Go Skegness project.

GO Skegness

Practice and pharmacy access maintained at all times

The works will begin on Monday 13 November and are expected to last for five weeks, subject to reasonable weather conditions.

As part of the project, the existing footpath on the A52/Skegness Road will be reconstructed and widened to allow space for two new bus stops, one on the north-side and one on the south-side, to be installed.

Temporary traffic signals will be in place on the A52, near the worksite, to ensure the safety of road users and the work force while the new bus stops are constructed. The signals will be in use from Monday 20 November, Monday to Friday, when needed between 7am and 5pm.

The temporary signals will be in use from 20 November on weekdays as and when required during working hours.

In addition, a 30mph speed limit will be in place along the A52 near the worksite for the duration of the works, including weekends.

Access to the medical practice and pharmacy will be maintained at all times. 

Cllr Richard Davies, Executive Member for Highways and Transport, said:

“Go Skegness is all about making sustainable travel easier for people on the coast; not just for visitors, but people living in the area, too.

“The new bus stops and improved footway are being put in place to serve the wider community. Our hope is that, once the works are complete, more people that use the medical practice will leave their cars at home and walk, cycle or take a bus to see their GP instead.”

The Go Skegness project has been made possible thanks to £4m of funding secured by the Greater Lincolnshire LEP from the Government’s Single Local Growth Fund. The work is being carried out during the autumn and winter months so as not to adversely impact holiday season traffic.
