Ten weeks of roadworks are due to begin on Monday to widen Boultham Park Road in Lincoln.

Motorists travelling east on Valentine Road/Dixon Street will be unable to turn right into Boultham Park Road south for the duration of the works.

Access to and from Boultham Park Road north will be via Coulson Road/Boultham Avenue.

Paul Coathup, assistant director for highways and transportation, said:"Over the next few weeks, we will be widening Boultham Park Road and carrying out other maintenance work such as resurfacing, repainting road markings and upgrading the existing street lighting.

"The work will reduce travel times for motorists, making a significant improvement to traffic flow within the city.

"Subject to weather conditions, the work will start on February 4 and is expected to last for ten weeks, we apologise for any inconvenience caused."

    so why the need for Boutham Park Road North to be closed?! Boultham Avenue is a ridiculous layout and difficult to pass other vehicles (especially those with drivers possessing no spatial awareness) at the best of times, not helped by staff from "Lincoln Security" parking on the double yellows at the eastern end. If the closure is to prevent people cutting through to avoid the inevitable traffic on Dixon Street, surely it would make more sense to close access at the Boultham Park Road/Dixon Street junction? Yet another decision made with no regard for residents!
