Roads in Holbeach and Grantham will be among the first to be given attention by Lincolnshire County Council as part of a £250,000 programme of pothole repairs.

The council says it will tackle the following locations over a six-week period:

  • April 3-4: West End, Holbeach
  • April 5-14: Barrowby Gate, Grantham
  • April 17-20: High Street, Walcott
  • April 21-26: Digby Road, Rowston
  • April 27-28: Newark Hill, Foston
  • May 2-8: Main Street, Ingoldsby
  • May 9-11: Station Road, Barkston

Each job will require a temporary road closure, with appropriate traffic management measures put in place for the duration.

But the council says it is just one part of road improvements.

Our patching team will be out dealing with potholes five days a week. Last year we repaired more than 100,000 potholes countywide – a figure I’m looking to match this year.

But this is just one strand of our road maintenance programme. In addition, we’ll have a programme of resurfacing works that will eradicate even more potholes, along with a range of improvement schemes aimed at tackling congestion.

We have a total of around £35m to spend, on top of the millions we’re investing in building major new roads, such as the Lincoln Eastern Bypass and Grantham Southern Relief Road. And we’ll be sure to make every penny count.
