Disruptions are expected during a major scheme to resurface crumbling footpaths and pot holed roads across the Isle.

The micro-asphalt road resurfacing programme will begin in the Isle on July 31 and affects roads in Belton, Low Burnham and West Butterwick.

Meanwhile, work started this week to resurface 30 footpaths in Westwoodside, Haxey, Owston Ferry, West Butterwick, Beltoft, Belton, Crowle, Ealand and Keadby.

North Lincolnshire Council has pledged to keep disruption to a minimum and temporary traffic managements will be in place. The work is expected to be finished by late September.

Councillor Nigel Sherwood, cabinet member for highways and neighbourhood, said: “The project shows that we are taking a preventative approach to ensuring our networks do not suffer the same damage from potholes next winter as they have this.“

Work on Westgate Road, Belton will start on July 31 and is expected to be done by August 5. Workmen will then tackle the main road through Low Burnham on August 6, West Street in West Butterwick from August 25 to 27, and North and South Street, West Butterwick, from August 27 to 29.
