Lincolnshire council approves plans to divert relief road

Lincolnshire County Council has approved plans to divert the route of the Spalding relief road.

It is after residents raised concerns about the previous route plan which would have meant the demolition of nine homes.

The road will now go through industrial land known as the Trojan Wood factory site to the west of the town.

It is hoped the new relief road will reduce journey times and congestion in the area.
