Fix our funds to fix our roads

Council agreed again to fill the pothole in our 2023/24 highways funding from Government. An extra £7m of Lincolnshire’s cash is going into our roads.

Your County Views survey responses, FixMyStreet reports, and this campaign is strengthening the case for fairer funding in Lincolnshire.

If you or local businesses have been affected by poor road conditions, tell us. By talking about the impact the lost funding has on you, we can campaign Government together.

We expect there to be further funding cuts in the years ahead so please join our fight for crucial cash by sharing your stories below.

  • Alternative strategy.

    by timddeb, 12 days ago

    Many years ago I was clerk to a local council. One of the members was hell bent of having our road resurfaced. The road was not in particularly bad state of repair. Eventually, however, her wish was granted. The effect was immediate. The slight raising of the road level meant that her house now flooded regularly. The worst thing was now that we had a really smooth surface, and the road provided no need to slow down. In a 30mph zone the average speed went from 40mph to 60mph. The councilor sold her house and moved away. SO "improvement" is... Continue reading

  • Roads, Signs and Verges.

    by rsl.stevens, about 1 month ago

    I could highlight numerous individual issues but the problems are well beyond individual issues.

    If I drove dangerously I would be prosecuted yet our roads are in a dangerous condition. They have gone beyond the 'pothole' repair stage, many miles need replacing.

    I'm also a motorcycle rider which heightens ones awareness of road surfaces. Long, groove like 'potholes' like the grand canyon are a particular problem for motorcyclists. Many of the repairs I see are to a very poor standard, what quality control measures are there to ensure work is done correctly?

    The verges are not maintained as they once... Continue reading

  • Damage

    by Ann.Coxall, about 1 month ago
    As I live in a rural area our roads are the last to be considered. I know main roads are important but it has taken over 4 years to repair properly one very bad area of a road near me. There are still many potholes around and some of them deep enough to cause damage if approached wrongly. You cannot always in the dark or with oncoming traffic to avoid them and the depth can do damage to tyres in particular.
  • Soggy fence

    by Disgruntled resident , about 2 months ago

    I have written and complained many times regarding the size of a pot hole on Silver Street, Wragby. This pot hole fills with water and then the traffic drive through it and the water is thrown over our front fence and it is deteriorating faster than it should do because of the amount of water. This pot hole could easily be filled and my fence allowed to dry out. I have painted this fence many times to protect it but this is a cost to me and something else needs doing. FILL THE POT HOLES!!!

  • PARK LANE, WASHINGBOROUGH. LN4 1DE. WHITE LINE NEEDS RE=REPAINTING.

    by Diane., 3 months ago

    THE WHITE LINE OUTSIDE 31 & 33 PARK LANE, NEEDS REPAINTING. DUE TO DRIVERS USING THIS MARKED PLACE TO PARK ON AND REVERSE . OTHER WHITE LINES ARE STILL CLEAR AND NOTICEABLE ON THE ROAD.


  • Fix my street .

    by Very disappointed , 4 months ago

    This facility seems to be a total waste of time . I’ve reported a missing speed sign and road surface repairs in main road Wrangle so many times I have now given up. The sign has been promised to be replaced for months now . But still not done. And the road surface problem causing our homes to shake badly are just dismissed as not necessary. So don’t waste your time on fix my street.

    RE MILL DROVE NORTH COWBIT.


    Regarding the recent controversy over this road in the press, the road was closed for 7months last year and since it opened last november there has been 21accidents and cars in ditches everyone that visits our business or house says this must be the most dangerous road in the county ,we were told this road would be closed when the Cowbit bypass was built but no that did not happen.

    All the local councillors know what this road is like but say nothing can be done about it, if we start with a 40mph speed... Continue reading

  • Tourist Tribulations

    by twiglet, 6 months ago
    I live in Derbyshire but decided to come and explore Lincolnshire, staying on the Wolds for a few days. I thought Derbyshire roads were bad but my goodness! Lincolnshire roads are so bad they scare me! Edges crumbling, forced onto middle of road, huge potholes. I'd never dare cycle for fear of being thrown off. If you're serious about attracting more tourism and thus creating new jobs and businesses in this beautiful county, you need to fix your roads! The Government needs to help left behind places like Lincs do just that.

    Two new Tyres
  • The Bardney Causway

    by Andrewdryden, 7 months ago
    The counci have made an effort to repair the causway but for the life of me I cannot understand why they only filled in half the cracks and left some of the bigger cracks untreated. Also further along the road they are repairing the road with sand and stones which since the repair have all bee knocked out by traffic,,

    Is this some kind of joke or are they really so indifferent to the plight of country dwellers that they just make a token effort.
