A Stagecoach spokesperson said: “Unfortunately, roadworks in the city have caused more disruption to bus services than originally anticipated.

“In the New Year we changed bus services we thought would be affected by the roadworks and these changes do appear to have been successful.

“Other services running to, from and within the city are experiencing long delays too. We are very sorry this is happening and are currently looking at ways to alleviate the problem.”

Users of the affected services are being asked to keep checking the Stagecoach website daily and to check with staff member in the Travel Shop if their service is affected.

The services also affected are 6, 10, 53, 53, 53A, 53A, 53B, 103, 103.

Temporary adjustments will be made to the following timetables:

Alan Aistrup, special projects manager at Lincolnshire County Council said: “The Canwick Road works site team are in regular contact with Stagecoach regarding the impact the works are having on services.

“We are also holding regular meetings with them and other bus operators to discuss issues and potential solutions. However whilst the works are ongoing there are only limited measures available to minimise the delays.”
