Washingborough Road closure planned for February half term

6 February 2018

The closures will allow BAM Nuttall to carry out necessary ducting work to allow for the underground diversion of overhead power lines – all part of the Lincoln Eastern Bypass project.

Road Closed

Works on Washingborough Road will take place from 6am on Monday 12 February to 6pm on Friday 16 February, during which time, a full road closure will be in place.

The diversion route for the Washingborough Road closure will be via B1190 Washingborough Road, B1188 Lincoln Road, Station Road, Branston Road, Sheepwash Lane, Pitts Road, B1190 Washingborough Road and vice versa.

Please note that HGVs will be diverted via Nocton & Potterhanworth during this closure.

Cllr Richard Davies, executive member for highways, said: “Despite the uncertainty surrounding the project last month, work on the Lincoln Eastern Bypass is back on track and well underway now.

“Not only are archaeological investigations and work on the Spalding to Lincoln line rail bridge continuing on, but we’re also progressing with the necessary utility diversion works that need to take place near Washingborough Road.

“We’ll continue doing everything we can to minimise disruption throughout these works and any other works part of the bypass project, and appreciate your patience while we work toward carrying out the city’s biggest road project in decades.”

Other upcoming and current closures and restrictions in place as part of the Lincoln Eastern Bypass project include:

  • Temporary 30mph speed limit on Greetwell Road
  • Temporary 200m path diversion on the Sustrans route along the River Witham
  • Closure of the Public Right of Way near Hawthorne Chase for Anglian Water sewer pipe diversions; however, the play park at Hawthorn Chase will remain open

The 7.5km Lincoln Eastern Bypass project is part-funded by a £50m Central Government capital grant and aims to improve Lincoln’s infrastructure, encourage growth, minimise traffic congestion and enhance the inter-city environment.
