Lincoln Christmas Market 2021 – Traffic restrictions

The Lincoln Christmas Market Temporary Traffic Regulation Order comes into force on 2nd December and will be demonstrated throughout by the placing of signs and cones; any vehicles parked after this time within the restricted areas will strictly be parked in contravention to the order, however, to accommodate the needs of residents the restrictions will not be enforced until 8am on 2nd December, but vehicles remaining after this time may be subject to a penalty charge notice.
If you do need to leave your vehicle on the street after 08:00am on 2nd December please ensure your vehicle is not parked in any area either subject to existing or temporary restrictions, such as double yellow lines or ‘no waiting’/ ‘no loading’ cones in order to avoid a penalty charge notice.

Prior to the event

During the build up to the event and the event itself it is necessary to restrict some roads within the area to a one way system, and there will be some areas of no waiting cones on Carline Road to ensure access is maintained. Please see details on these below:
