Network Rail is carrying out essential repair work at Swineshead level crossing next month to make sure train services can continue running safely and reliably.
The road surface at the crossing, which sits on the busy A17, as well as the track and ballast was fully replaced in December.
The formations underneath the new concrete slabs, which the track fits into, have moved and essential work is now required to prevent further damage and longer periods of disruption.
For this work to take place safely, the section of the A17 at Swineshead level crossing will be closed from 19:00 on Saturday 8 until 07:00 on Monday 10 May. A fully signposted diversion will be in place for drivers.
There will also be changes to East Midlands Railway services on Sunday 9 May. Trains will run between Nottingham and Grantham, then passengers will need to use bus replacement services between Grantham and Boston, where they can connect to train services between Boston and Skegness.
People should continue to follow the latest Government guidance around the use of public transport and minimise the number of journeys they make where possible.
Passengers who need to travel are strongly advised to check their journey via National Rail Enquiries or with their train operator and allow plenty of time.
