Nettleham to Benefit from £230,000 Road Refurbishment Scheme

The Dene, The Crescent, Crescent Close, Brookfield Avenue, Midway Close, Riverdale, Ashtree Avenue, Willowfield and Parkside in Nettleham to be given a new lease of life.

The £230,000 project is due to begin on Wednesday, 31st October and is expected to be completed on Monday, 26th November.

To allow the improvements to be carried out safely, each road will be closed while its carriageway is reconstructed.

Cllr. Richard Davies, Lincolnshire County Council Executive Member for Highways, said:

“We have a number of residential roads across the county that are reaching the end of their life.

“As opposed to just filling in the potholes, we’re spending around £1m on rebuilding them.

“That way they should last a lot longer and require less maintenance.

“There will be some local disruption during the improvements, but the short-term inconvenience will be far outweighed by the long-term benefits.”

Cllr. Giles McNeill, who represents Nettleham on West Lindsey District Council, commented:

“I am really pleased that the county council are going to rebuild the roads in Nettleham. I know a number of residents of this part of the village have often mentioned to me the state of the roads and it is great the working with my colleague, County Councillor Jackie Brockway, we have been able to get this work to be done in Nettleham.”
