An online campaign has been launched demanding urgent improvements to roads in Skegness.

The petition on Lincolnshire County Council’s website has already attracted more than 120 supporters.

It claims that roads in the town are in a ‘dangerous state’ with an ‘unmanageable’ number of potholes.

Campaigners are demanding the county council finds money to repair the roads properly.

Writing on the webpage Cheryl Silverwood said: “Please enlighten residents of Skegness how on earth you can justify the complete neglect of the roads?”

Executive member for highways Richard Davies accepted roads across the county are not up to standard, but major improvements were planned on the A52 between Skegness and Boston.

He said: “We’ve structured our budget to make sure we’re investing as much as possible on road maintenance.

“The county council will spend nearly £4million repairing the highways in the Skegness area over the coming year, and this will have a significant impact on the quality of road surfaces in the town.”

The county’s highways department has just finsihed restructing part of Lumley Road in Skegness after 
finding it was in a worse 
state of repair than first anticipated.
