Cold weather has delayed resurfacing work on a town centre road.

Linden Homes Midlands is currently carrying out work in South Road, Coggles Causeway and Great Northern Gardens in Bourne. The firm had hoped to complete the work by December 13, and planned to close parts of the road on that date for final resurfacing. But cold weather has now delayed that work until March.

A company spokesman said: “Following some unforeseen delays the intention was to complete these works before Christmas, however we would like to inform local residents and users of this particular stretch of road that we are now unable to complete the works before March 2016.

“This is due to the fact that the specific industry-specified materials we need to use to surface the road cannot be laid in temperatures of less than 8C and Lincolnshire County Council requirement to complete the final surfacing works over weekends only.”

Linden Homes Midlands apologised for any inconvenience.
