The works will be carried out in three separate phases.

Counr Richard Davies, executive member for highways, said: "These improvements are absolutely essential, as the carriageway and footways along Castleton Boulevard have reached the end of their serviceable life and need to be replaced.

"While we're on-site, we'll also be installing a new uncontrolled pedestrian crossing location while improving seven others along the road – a job that will enhance safety for residents and visitors once complete.

"These works are part of an ongoing programme of improvements in Skegness that serves to enhance the area for residents and visitors alike.

"In addition to carrying out the works out of season when the roads are quieter, we also intend to keep disruption to a minimum for businesses and residents by maintaining access as far as reasonably practicable.

"However, we're mindful that bad weather as we head into winter can sometimes delay the completion of roadworks, so we ask everyone to remain patient and bear with us if this happens."
