Lincolnshire County Council say five months worth of construction work to improve traffic flow on Canwick Road in Lincoln is well on track ahead of its planned completion date of the end of May.

It comes as a new stage of overnight closures are introduced on Canwick Road and Canwick Hill from today. Lincolnshire County Council say they are trying to minimise disruption to drivers by carrying out certain work overnight. The council also says construction work is taking place on site 24/7. A number of drivers have suffered daily delays as a result of the project. Here is project manager Sam Edwards.
