9 May 2017

Please note that these surfacing works have been delayed due to heavy rain and are now expected to begin on Tuesday 30 May.

Expected to be complete by end of May

The surfacing works, which are the final step in completing the newly-created footway and cycleway located south of Aylmer Road, will begin on Tuesday 17 May.

Construction of the path finished in February; however, the surfacing being used can only be applied at certain times of the year.

The works are expected to last for two days, ending on Wednesday 18 May, subject to reasonable weather conditions. The footpath and cycleway will be closed to both cyclists and pedestrians for the duration of the works.

Work on the second phase of the Gibraltar Point pathway, which started on Monday 6th March and is expected to be complete at the end of May, will be unaffected by the resurfacing of phase one.

The main focus of the scheme is to reconstruct and improve the existing path so that it is serviceable and attractive to both cyclists and pedestrians.  Additionally, the new kerb lines will be set further back, creating a wider carriageway for vehicles passing one another.

The new Skegness to Gibraltar Point footpath and cycle path is part of the £5.7m Go Skegness project, an initiative designed to support the East Coast economy; encourage growth; alleviate town centre congestion; and develop more opportunities for visitors and residents to use sustainable methods of transport.
