A section of Drummond Road, Skegness, is set to be repaired next week.

Flooding has damaged an area of carriageway near the yacht club, meaning it now has to be resurfaced. The team will also be carrying out works on the nearby verges.

Work will initially take place overnight, on the evenings of Monday 5 and Tuesday 6 March. To allow the repairs to take place safely, the road will be closed at its junction with Seacroft Square from 6pm to 7am, but will be open during the daytime on Tuesday as normal.

However, on Wednesday 7 March, the road will be closed from 7.30am to 5pm for the final stage of the works. In light of this, the Gibraltar Point visitor centre will be closed for the day.

Local access will be maintained throughout.

A highways spokesperson said: “We want to get these repairs done before the start of the main visitor season. We’ll be doing as much of the work as possible overnight to minimise the disruption, but we will need to do some during the daytime on the Wednesday. We apologise in advance for any inconvenience caused.”
