Lindsay Road Resurfacing Scheme

The Lindsay Road resurfacing scheme  forms part of this years Highways Structural Maintenance Programme and will involve replacing the old worn out road surface on both sides of the carriageway with new material.

The resurfacing will be done in a series of three coordinated phases which have been designed to allow the work to be carried out in the safest most efficient way whilst minimising as far as possible the impact on the travelling public. A plan is included on this page which will help explain the following arrangements which are:

Phase One


Burton Road to County Gates Gyratory (Liverpool Victoria roundabout). From 7am Sunday 5th August until  6am Monday 6th August. Please note this date differs to that originally advertised due to expected foul weather on forecast for Sunday 29th July.

Phase Two


County Gates Gyratory (Liverpool Victoria roundabout) to St Aldhelms Road. From 6 am Monday 30th July until 6 am Saturday 4th August. Effective 24 hours a day until completion.

No vehicles will be permitted to head west from County Gates towards St Aldhelms Road. Vehicles will still be able to head east from Leicester Road/Penn Hill and St Aldhelms Road towards County Gates although there may be delays.

Side roads of Burton Road, Wilderton Road, Wilderton Road East will be closed at their junctions with Lindsay Road during this time. Similarly the TESCO car park entrance/exit with Lindsay Road will also be closed. This is a safety measure to help prevent dangerous driving behaviour during the works.

TEMPORARY DIVERSION - vehicles coming from County Gates Gyratory (Liverpool Victoria roundabout) will be directed to use the A35 Poole Road. Access to St Aldhelms Road will be available.

Phase Three


Leicester Road to St Aldhelms Road from 6am Monday 6th August until 6 am Friday 10th August.

No vehicles will be permitted to head north from Leicester Road into Lindsay Road. Vehicles will still be able to turn out of Lindsay Road into Leicester Road although there may be some delays.

Please note:

St Aldhelms Road will be open as usual throughout and existing Highway restrictions will still apply.

Operational hours on site are 7.30am to 4pm although times may vary due to circumstances beyond our control such as mechanical breakdown, delayed deliveries, bad weather etc.

Emergency vehicles will be accommodated as and when required, emergency crews and site operatives are familiar with the arrangements in such circumstances.
