Replacement works at Dozen's Bank, West Pinchbeck to start in July 2022 after Lincolnshire County Council project was delayed

More news, no ads


Works to replace a worn-out road will begin this month - nearly a year after they were first delayed.

Improvements to the carriageway on the A151 Dozen's Bank in West Pinchbeck will start in late July - with a full 24/7 closure in place from Crown Hall Farm to Lake Ross Caravan Park.

The start date is Monday, July 25 - with the Lincolnshire County Council project expected to last for up to three weeks subject to weather.

Work was originally scheduled to kick off in July 2021, but due to the road having a steel mesh under it, a specialist sub-contractor was needed to excavate it.

Coun Richard Davies, executive member for highways, said: “Although we had to postpone this important project last year, I’m really glad to say works to improve Dozen's Bank are now planned to start next month.

"This will involve removing the current carriageway and replacing it with 1,600 tonnes of tarmac and stone.

"When finished, these improvements will make travelling the A151 much safer and more comfortable for all road users."

The diversion route for the closure will be via A151 to Bourne / A15 to Market Deeping roundabout / A1175 to A1175-A16 Applegreen roundabout / A16 to A16-A151 roundabout / A151 to West Pinchbeck, and vice versa.

A local diversion will also be in place for Clay Drove.

The county council previously carried out temporary repairs to Dozen's Bank to resume two-way movement and to make it easier for people to get around.
