Spalding road remains closed while dip is repaired
A Spalding road which has been the subject of concerns from residents is currently closed.
The town’s Park Road closed on Monday and will remain closed until Friday, August 28 to allow vital roadworks to be carried out.
A spokesperson for Lincolnshire County Council’s highways team confirmed that the works are being carried out to rectify the dip which has appeared in the road.
He said: “We are resurfacing Park Road in Spalding this week.
“Anglian Water have already carried out some work to rectify the cause of the dip in the road, and it’s now being resurfaced to put it right.”
This is the first phase of the resurfacing works on the road, with the stretch between Pennygate and Parkside Crescent the main focus of the works.
Diversions are in place, with traffic being sent along Winsover Road, to King’s Road and on to Pinchbeck Road in the town.
The stretch of Park Road, which runs from Winsover Road to Pinchbeck Road, is completely closed to allow for the resurfacing works to be carried out but emergency access remains in place.
The current roadworks follow previous works to repair kerbs on the same road in July after complaints and safety concerns from residents.
It has been confirmed that the second phase of the roadworks will be continued in 2021.
The spokesperson added: “This is the first phase of the resurfacing works on Park Road – from Pennygate to Parkside Crescent – with the remainder of the road resurfaced in the second phase next year.”
Bus company Brylaine Travel has also altered its Spalding Town Service route due to the closure.
In a post on social media, the company said: “Spalding Town Service – from Monday, August 24, for five days we will be unable to serve Park Road and Park Close.
“We will divert via Pinchbeck Road and Woolram Wygate picking up line of route at the junction of Park Close. Sorry for any inconvenience this causes.”
Delays are also likely.
