Residents and businesses who are set to be affected by major roadworks in Tattershall Road this month are being invited to a meeting on Wednesday.

As revealed in this week’s Standard the road will have a one-way system in place from Monday, September 16, for five weeks to allow Chestnut Homes to build a new housing development.

Chestnut Homes representatives will be on hand at the meeting on Wednesday, which takes place at the Unicorn pub at 6pm.

Coun Carol Taylor, who organised the meeting, said: “I know many people are concerned about the impact the traffic controls may have, especially those with businesses, so I hope they take this opportunity to speak to Chestnut Homes.”

Coun Taylor has criticised Lincolnshire County Council for not telling people about the works sooner.

Motorists will be able to enter Tattershall Road from Grand Sluice Bridge, however, all traffic must exit the road via Rawsons Lane, Horncastle Road and Norfolk Street.

A full road closure will also take place on Tattershall Road for a minimum of one day in each of the weeks commencing October 21, November 11 and November 25, as the developer needs to position a crane on the road.

Advance warning signs will be in place and a local diversion route will be signed. All dates are subject to weather conditions.
