Residents in Kirton will see improvements in the Market Place when a new one-way system is put in place on George Street and High Street.

The new traffic management, which will be installed at the end of January, will aid traffic flow, and improve road safety.

George Street will be one-way in a northerly direction from its junction with the Market Place up to the junction with King Edward Street. High Street will be one-way in a westerly direction from the junction with Sylvester Street up to the junction with the Market Place.

An experimental traffic order will be introduced, which will allow the council to monitor the effectiveness of the measures over a period of 18 months.

Cllr Rob Waltham, leader, North Lincolnshire Council, said: “We have been working closely with Kirton in Lindsey Town Council and the Regeneration Group on the plans to implement a one-way system in the Market Place.

“Keeping residents safe and well is a key priority for us, and it is hoped the new traffic management will help traffic flow better through the Market Place and improve the experience for people visiting this wonderful Wolds town.”
