Busy Horncastle road near primary school to undergo 5 weeks of repairs

Motorists may face some disruption while a busy Lincolnshire road undergoes five weeks of repairs. Workers from Lincolnshire County Council will be replacing the pavement along the central A153 Louth Road in Horncastle, from Monday, February 5, until Wednesday, March 13.

The month-long renovations will be focused between Linden Road and Marys Close and should take a total of 38 days. Karen Cassar, the council’s assistant director of highways, said the improvements would make a “real difference” to the area and workers would “do everything possible to keep disruption to a minimum”.

The £115,000 works will involve the creation of new crossing points for pedestrians to use and a better path into the back of Horncastle Primary School. No diversion route will be in place as traffic will be regulated through the use of traffic lights and signals, the council says.

February 5 will also mark the beginning of weeklong repairs to a ‘dip’ in Branston Causeway, between Lincoln and Horncastle.
