Warning ahead of major Lincoln roadworks

Drivers in Lincoln have been warned of weeks of "significant" disruption due to roadworks on a major route.

Changes to Tritton Road ahead of a supermarket expansion are to be carried out alongside work on three other junctions.

The project, to improve traffic flow and provisions for cyclists, will run from mid May to October.

The road will remain open, but drivers have been told to allow more time for their journeys.

Road closures

The first phase of work will take place at the Moorland Way junction with Tritton Road from 17 May and is expected to be completed within seven weeks.

From August onwards, work on the Tritton Road junctions with Doddington Road, Moorland Avenue and Skellingthorpe Road will be carried out.

Dave Underwood, senior highways officer at Lincolnshire County Council, said the project would bring many benefits to shoppers, motorists, pedestrians and cyclists

He added: "We do, however, appreciate that to achieve this, a significant level of disruption will be required.

"Motorists are advised to plan ahead, allow extra time for their journeys and consider the alternatives routes of the bypass and Newark Road.

"Some road closures will inevitably be required but we will keep Tritton Road open with traffic management in operation controlling the traffic."
