Spilsby £380,000 resurfacing works have 28-mile diversion route via Skegness

A set of road resurfacing works in a Lincolnshire town have a diversion route that will take motorists on a 28-mile detour. Halton Road, in Spilsby, is being replaced to increase its lifespan, with work due to begin on Monday, June 24.

While the diversion route provided by Lincolnshire County Council takes motorists on a lengthy trip via Skegness, a highways boss says it’s because they have to use “like-for-like roads”. The works will happen overnight from 7.30pm to 6am, Monday to Friday, with a planned end date of Wednesday, July 3.

Karen Cassar, assistant director for highways said: “I’m delighted that we are able to replace the existing surface on Halton Road and improve this stretch for all road users in the area. The old road surface needs replacing and, although the work programme is substantial, we will get it completed as quickly as possible. This set of works is going to really increase the lifespan of the road, too.”

She added: “These works will cost around £380,000 to deliver and will be a big uplift for the area. The official diversion route is long, and this is because we have to use like-for-like roads that can accommodate the same weight and size of vehicle as the road that’s being improved.

“Because of this, we are advising road users using the alternative route – which is the shortest possible option we can plan – to leave plenty of time for their journey. Access to the town centre via the diversion will also be maintained at all times and will not affect businesses. We will also ensure that personnel will be on-site to assist anyone that needs help.

“This is a large set of works and I would like to thank anyone effected by them for their understanding and patience as we get on with delivering this improvement.”

The diversion route will be: A16 to Partney Pumps roundabout, A158 toward Gunby roundabout, A158 toward Skegness, A158 Burgh Road, B1528 into Skegness, A52 Wainfleet Bank, A52 Croft Bank, B1195 through Wainfleet All Saints, B1195 Spilsby and vice versa.
