Lincolnshire County Council has been charged £6,224 to cover the cost of replacing the bright, thick yellow lines that were incorrectly painted in the conservation area of Upgate, Louth, in November.

A council spokesperson apologised for the mistake, which was blamed on a ‘communication error’ between the council and contractors.

Following the replacement of the yellow lines in November, Dean Myhill (area highways manager at Lincolnshire County Council) said: “We apologise for this error and we have painted the correct lines.

“In a conservation area such as Upgate in Louth, we use a more subtle colour for our yellow lines and paint them about half as wide.

“This is to make sure our road markings help to protect the town’s unique character.”
