Maintaining local roads remains a top priority for Lincolnshire Conservatives, and we are spending £40 million this year on an extensive repair programme for Lincolnshire’s roads.
Locally in Hough Division I have been pleased to secure an extensive programme of surface dressing and patching works this summer, which has improved the condition and longevity of a number of key local roads, including the villages of Claypole, Dry Doddington and Stubton. This investment has been achieved through regular meetings with our local Highways teams to identify and lobby for those improvements needed in our area.
Carriageway replacement and resurfacing of the A607 through Carlton Scroop has recently started and on track for completion at the end of October. The deteriorating condition of the A607 was first raised with Highways at our parish walkabout with the Parish Council in 2018, so I am particularly pleased to see this scheme in the 2020/21 programme, using additional monies awarded by the Department for Transport.
We have also patched and replaced sections of Doddington Lane/Claypole Lane and Ease Lane at Westborough, following a Highways walkabout meeting last year. This has significantly improved the daily commutes for those living and travelling in these parishes.
I always stand up for our area at County Hall and work with colleagues positively to ensure we receive the investment we need.
