Gunby Roundabout set for night-time improvements

Night-time resurfacing works to replace the worn-out road surface on each leg of Gunby Roundabout, along with a stretch of the eastbound A158, will start on Monday 9 September.

The total programme of works is expected to last for eight weeks, subject to suitable weather conditions, with the works being carried out in phases.  The closures will be in place from 7pm to 6am, Monday to Friday.

These works will inevitably cause some disruption, but we’ll be doing everything we can to keep it to a minimum.Karen Cassar, Lincolnshire County Council

In addition to road closures at various points of the roundabout during the works, lane closures will also be in place on the dualled sections of A158.

Contractors will ensure access for emergency vehicles, residents and businesses will be maintained at all times, as far reasonably practicable.

Karen Cassar, assistant director highways, said: “Gunby is an essential part of the route to Skegness and the county’s coast from the west.

“Over the years, the condition of the road surface at each of its legs has considerably deteriorated. So, once the summer holidays are over, we’ll be rebuilding each leg of the roundabout so that people’s journeys are smoother and safer.

“These works will inevitably cause some disruption, but we’ll be doing everything we can to keep it to a minimum, including working overnight so that people using the roundabout in the day aren’t affected.”
