Lincolnshire County Council works crews plan to get to grips with the route overnight to increase the lifespan of the road.

They plan to remove the existing top of the road and lay a new surface.

Coun Richard Davies, LCC executive member for highways, said said the road closures would be lifted each night to reduce disruption:

He said: “Our expert team will be working overnight so that traffic disruption in the area is dramatically reduced.

“To further the decrease the work's impact to the local community, the road closure will also be lifted at the end of each night.”

“To resurface this road in a full and proper way will cost around £300,000. When completed Queens Road will be in a much better condition for the people of Skegness.

“Whilst we are doing everything that we can to minimise any disruption for residents and business, there may be still some aspects of our work that impacts on people and those elements can't be avoided. In light of this I’d like to thank anyone affected for their patience whilst these improvement works happen.”


The works will begin Monday, March 13, with a scheduled end date of Friday, March 24. These will be overnight works from 8pm until 6pm. No weekend works to be carried out. It is worth noting that the planned end date may be extended due to unforeseen circumstances.
