Members of the public visiting the London Road Cemetery in Louth are being reminded that the entrance to the site is now via the Lower London Road, with traffic flow in a strictly one way direction, exiting onto Linden Walk.
The changes have been supported by new road signage within the cemetery and on the access roads.
Louth Town Clerk, Linda Blankley, said: “The changes are necessary to ensure that there is no conflict with traffic travelling in different directions, to eradicate damage to unmarked graves on the edges of narrow roads, and to create more areas for parking within the site.”
Mrs Blankley added that she is aware that there is an increase of visitors at this time of year, and with the recent wet weather verges are more vulnerable and damaged more easily. The traffic flow changes mean that the eastern side of the roundabout can now be used for short term parking, and the western side for moving traffic.
Green Waste bins have also been introduced on the site, adjacent to non-recyclable waste bins, and visitors are being encouraged to separate their waste into the appropriate containers to assist with biodiversity projects within the cemetery and reduce waste disposal costs.
