Our amazing team of specialists are all set to answer your questions and share the once hidden stories of Lincolnshire’s past.





Viking Link activity 

Viking Link, working with Balfour Beatty and associated subcontractors will be carrying our restoration works along the cable route throughout 2023.


Traffic management operatives will provide safe access and egress for residents and other necessary vehicles.

The work has gone through consultation with the Local Highway Authority, Lincolnshire County Council (LCC) with all necessary Temporary Traffic Regulation Orders and Road Space permits in place.

All reasonable measures will be taken to complete the work as quickly as possible and to minimise disruption and inconvenience.
