B1188 at Scopwick to be resurfaced

Worn out sections of the B1188 at Scopwick are to be given a new lease of life, with work due to begin on Monday (August 20).


The repairs are expected to be completed by Thursday (August 23), according to the county council’s highways engineers.

To allow the improvements to be carried out safely, the road will be closed in the area around its junction with the B1191. Traffic will be diverted via the B1202, A15 and A17.

Mark Heaton, programme leader for surfacing and patching, said: “These much-needed improvements are likely to have some impact on people travelling in the area, so we’d recommend motorists allow additional time for their journeys and use alternative routes where possible. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.”

Long Drove in Rippingale Fen, Station Street, High Street and East Street in Rippingale and North Drove, Swaton were all done over the weekend.

Other roads were due to be surface dressed this week (depending on weather) starting today (Monday), to make them safer and extend their lifespan.

Each location will take around one to two days to complete.

To ensure the safety of the workforce, appropriate forms of traffic management will need to be used at each site. This means delays are likely and people are advised to use alternative routes where possible.

Following the works a 20mph speed limit will be in place for seven days.
