Expected delays due to confirmed road closures near major tourist attractions


Critical roadwork lasting nearly two weeks is set to be carried out on a long stretch of rural road in Lincolnshire. Five Gates Lane in Belton will undergo structural repairs which the council says will improve the structure of the road while improving safety for road users and improving ride quality.

The scenic country lane is to the rear of the popular Belton House and Park. Work will begin on Wednesday May 11 and should be completed on Friday May 20.

The work teams will be present there from Monday to Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Road closures are planned and detour routes will be in place and maintained 24 hours a day.

Londonthorpe Wood car park will still be open, but County Council has warned it may become inaccessible as crews work on the road between the entrance and the junction with the B6403 High Dyke. The road will reopen for the weekend, with all restrictions lifted between 6:30 p.m. Friday May 13 and 6 a.m. Monday May 16.

Karen Cassar, deputy highways manager for Lincolnshire County Council, said crews would work to keep disruption to a minimum. She said: “We are undertaking the work on this road to ensure that it maintains the safety and quality that residents and visitors have come to expect when driving and cycling on the road.

“With the weekend suspension of the road closure and detour route, we are working to minimize disruption as much as possible. We would like to thank everyone for their understanding and patience as we do this work on Five Gates Lane.”
