Two weeks of diversions while A16 roadworks carried out

A diversion route will be in place for two weeks while a Lincolnshire road is resurfaced. Ludborough Road in North Thoresby, between Louth and Grimsby, will be closed while the highways team from Lincolnshire County Council make their repairs.

The night-time works are scheduled to begin on Monday, November 6 with a planned end date of Monday, November 20. Karen Cassar, the county council’s assistant director for highways, said disruption would be kept ‘to a minimum’.

She said: “Outside of on-site shift hours, the road closure and diversion route that has to be in place for the safety of the crew and road users will be lifted to minimise disruption to the local traffic network. We are doing this, in conjunction with carrying out these works overnight, to lessen the impact on the local traffic network.”

The diversion route will be via the A16, B1201 High Street, Station Road and vice versa. Workers will be on-site from 8pm until 6am each night.

No weekend work has been planned. Ms Cassar added: “We are making a big improvement to North Thoresby by resurfacing Ludborough Road.

“By doing this work to give the road a new surface users will get a much better quality of ride, better braking performance and we are increasing the lifespan of the road, too.”
