Councillor Richard Davies, executive member for highways at Lincolnshire County Council, said: “Work on the bypass is progressing really well, and we’re still on track for having the new road open during October 2019.

“We intend to do everything we can to minimise disruption throughout these works and any other works part of the Lincoln Eastern Bypass, and appreciate your patience while we work toward carrying out the city’s biggest road project in decades.”
