Improvement works scheduled for Sea Lane and Roman Bank junction in Ingoldmells

19 September 2017

Work to improve a road for both pedestrians and road users will get underway next month.

Roman Bank

Improvements include widening two of the junction’s pedestrian crossing points and extensive resurfacing, with works due to start on Monday 2 October.

The works will take place in two phases.

The first phase of works will see the two crossing points on Roman Bank, north and south of its junction with Sea Lane, widened. This is expected expected to last for three weeks. A majority of the work will be carried out Monday to Friday; however some activity may take place on Saturdays and Sundays if necessary. Four-way traffic signals will be in place for 24 hours a day for the duration of phase one.

No works will take place during October half-term however temporary traffic signals will remain in use.

Phase two will include resurfacing along Roman Bank and Sea Lane to replace worn out carriageway. The works are scheduled to start on Monday 6 November for two weeks during weekdays, weather permitting.

During the phase two works, a 12-hour road closure will be in place from 6am to 6pm, Monday to Friday. No work will be carried out over weekends as part of phase two, unless progress is affected by weather or other constraints.

The signed diversion route for the resurfacing closure will be via Anchor Lane to the A52, linking into Roman Bank, and vice versa. Access for residents and businesses will be maintained and supported

Cllr Richard Davies, Executive Member for Highways, said:

“As part of the improvements being made, the width of the crossing point at Sea Lane and Roman Bank is being increased from five metres to nine metres. This will improve pedestrian movement by allowing more people to cross the road safely, particularly during busy times of the year.

“These improvements, along with resurfacing and reconstructing parts of the carriageways, will make this area much safer and easier to navigate for all road users.

“We’ve arranged this programme of works in such a way so that there is no disruption during half term; however, we still ask for your continued patience while these works are carried out.”

Both improvements are part of Lincolnshire County Council’s Go Skegness project. The scheme, made possible thanks to £4m of funding secured by the Greater Lincolnshire LEP from the Government’s Single Local Growth Fund, aims to alleviate town centre congestion and develop more opportunities for visitors and residents to use sustainable methods of transport.

Cllr Davies added: “Go Skegness is progressing smoothly and we’ve already accomplished a lot as part of the project. For example, just this year, we’ve extended the bus lane along A52 Roman Bank, improved the bus stop at Walls Lane and upgraded the cyclepath from Butlins to North Shore Road.

“Also, at the moment, we’re working on new foot and cycleways in Ingoldmells and Winthorpe that will link to the seafront and hopefully encourage more people to leave their car at home and walk or ride a bike when getting from point A to point B at the shore.”
