Lincolnshire County Council is offering it residents the chance to see maintenance works as they happen after the inclusion of an interactive map to show the schedule of upcoming highways improvement works.
The county council’s map, which sits on its website, shows upcoming resurfacing, surface dressing, footway works and more, and allows residents to filter works by type, town or division.
As much of this work is weather dependent, the map will be updated regularly to show any changes to the dates of planned works, and to mark completed jobs. But the map doesnt show reactive repairs.
Cllr Richard Davies, executive member for highways at Lincolnshire County Council, said: “For years now, we’ve uploaded our annual work schedules as long lists that residents would have to trawl through to find works near them. Now, we’re able to present that information on the map, so people can easily see what improvements we’re doing near where they live, or on routes they usually take around the county.
“We’ll also be updating the map regularly to reflect any changes in the schedule and to show how much work has already been completed, so residents will know that they’ve got the latest information. Our maintenance programme shows the full breadth of the work we do to keep Lincolnshire’s roads safe, and stop defects such as potholes forming in the first place.”
In the past year, the county council’s maintenance work has included the resurfacing of 44 miles of road, 248 miles of surface dressing and repairing 95 miles of footways.
