Skegness roadworks expected to cause disruption, motorists warned

Residents and motorists can expect ‘some disruption’ during five weeks of roadworks on the Lincolnshire coast. Highways workers from Lincolnshire County Council will be repairing two footpaths in Skegness: one in A158 Burgh Road and one in Churchill Avenue.

Both works will start on Saturday, February 10, and will last between eight days and five weeks. Cllr Richard Davies, the council’s executive member for highways, said: “When we rebuild footpaths, there’s naturally going to be some disruption because of the nature of the work.

“By putting these schemes together, we are able to get twice the work done for the inconvenience of one job. What that will mean is that, when complete, these works will make a really big difference to this part of Skegness and will improve the footpaths for everyone who uses them.”

While the works in Churchill Avenue are expected to be completed by Sunday, February 18, the Burgh Road scheme will take until Saturday, March 16. Workers will be on-site in both streets between 7.30am and 5.30pm.

The repairs to Churchill Avenue will require a road closure and a signed diversion will be in place for drivers. It will take them from Burgh Road to St Marys Road and Beacon Park Drive, and vice versa.

Traffic along Burgh Road will be controlled by temporary traffic lights for the entire five-week duration. Cllr Davies added: “These works will cost a total of around £152,000 to complete and will extend the life of the footpaths over many years.

“I would like to thank everyone affected for their understanding and patience while we get these improvements carried out as quickly as possible.”

The end dates given by the council are dependent on suitable weather.
