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.

  • Blocked gulley.

    by TrevorC, 15 days ago

    The drainage gulley pot in Boultham Park Road, in the layby outside the Co-op has been blocked for months and there is usually a large pond there. Does the council unblock gulleys any more?

    I live in Covenham , there is always flooding in Newbridge Lane and Ings Lane. The drains cannot cope , there is still a broken manhole on the footpath and when this area floods it is covered with water as is the roadside dyke.

    Large potholes and uneven surfaces along Newbridge Lane , Birketts Lane, Grange Lane and Hurtons Lane are becoming dangerous for cars and pedestrians. All these have been reported to Fix my Street . Residents living on these lanes have no other access to their Homes . I live in Hurtons Lane and have complained repeatedly as... Continue reading

    4 times the River Eau as flooded The Footpaths and Road on Lindholme taking the top surface down to Susworth. Nothing has been done to repair this mess. Get your act together and get the problem fixed.
  • damaging potholes

    by Thea Whyte, 3 months ago
    In 2023 I had 3 tyres damaged that had to be replaced, at my considerable cost whilst driving on East Lindsey roads, notably the Mablethorpe straight between the town & Maltby le Marsh.

    I use the road fromThe cross Inn in Mablethorpe to Trusthorpe. The road is wavy side to side and breaking up. One of the worst roads in the area.


    East Lindsey 'goes through the motions' of being open to consider compensation when several hoops have been jumped through but don't even respond let alone accept any responsibility.

  • Lincolnshire issue

    by JV, 3 months ago
    I’ve been travelling around the country a fair bit recently. Lincolnshire’s road are undoubtedly the worst. I actually struggled in Plymouth recently to see clearly in the roads- because they were so clear! When returning from Leicestershire I literally noticed the boundary of counties as I crossed it, the road surface was an instant give away. The funding by government needs to be shared based on need. Many other counties just don’t need as much financial support to repair their roads. Ours are horrendous. Also, have been proven unfortunately both dangerous and fatal
  • Legbourne

    by Kirst, 3 months ago
    Along with all the other potholes in and around the town, driving through Legbourne the past few days- terrible road conditions, potholes all on the road near the old Cyden Homes turning. I'm surprised I didn't get a damaged tyre, needs sorting.
  • LCC Highways/Anglian Water.

    by Zipperhead, 3 months ago

    I used to drive HGV around the area and would report various pot holes and damages I saw during the day. I have just recently started to do the reporting again although I don't work anymore. I remember hitting a pothole in the dark and rain outside Cordeaux school gates and it was a deep one, called 101 Police as to me it was dangerous, and 4 hours after I reported it a red Audi hit the hole and ended up through the school fence, that hole should have been filled as an out of hours emergency! Cost me £400... Continue reading

  • Saddleback Road, Skidbrooke

    by ColetteSarah, 3 months ago

    I live at the east end of Saddleback Road so it is a regular road used by both myself and my family. The road is in such bad repair with so many potholes and a huge ridge running along the majority of the middle section of the road.

    A recent RTA happened whereby a vehicle was found in the dyke on its roof. It is not a surprise as the road is humped so much in the middle you feel like you are tipping into the ditch especially if you have to give way to an oncoming vehicle.

    The farmers... Continue reading

  • Road to Skegness

    by mendonca1966, 3 months ago

    I travel this daily. The stretch from the old tip to a mile or so past Burwell is an absolute disgrace, with many deep pot holes. In the dark it is well nigh impossible to ignore them and sooner or later there is going to be a nasty accident. I don't blame the Council per se but I do blame the local, supposedly Tory, MPs who do absolutely nothing for the County but who are quite happy to support wasting billions in the Ukraine.
