Section of A1031 at North Somercotes to be rebuilt and footpath widened

10 October 2017

Up to four weeks of improvements works, between Churchill Road and Lakeside Park, North Somercotes, will begin later this month.


Monday to Friday with road closure in place

During the first week of the project, due to begin on Monday 23 October, temporary traffic lights will be in place between Oasis Lakes and St Anne’s Avenue to protect the workforce whilst the footpath is widened.

Then, on Monday 30 October, the road will be closed between South Road and Lakeside Park to allow for the road to be reconstructed. During the closure, traffic will be directed via the A1031, B1201, A16, A157, B1200, A1031 and vice versa. Local access will be maintained.

Steve Brooks, senior project leader, said:

“This section of highway has reached the end of its serviceable life. To prevent further deterioration we are going to rebuild it. We are also taking the opportunity to widen the footway at the same time, to enhance the existing facility making it a safer asset for the school children.

“We will be working Monday to Friday, 9am to 6pm with road closure in place. The closure will be removed every day after 6pm.

“There is likely to be some disruption while the work is taking place, so we would advise that people leave additional time for their journeys and use alternative routes where possible.

“We apologise for any inconvenience caused.”
