Abbey Road in Bourne is closed temporarily for the next three weeks while work is going on to replace gas pipes. National Grid began work yesterday.
The project to renew the gas pipes is expected to take about three weeks to complete but only a short section of the road outside number 1 to number 13 will be shut off.
Access to Abbey Road will be maintained for pedestrians and businesses in the town will remain open as usual.
During the third and final week it may be necessary to close a lane in South Street and to introduce temporary two-way traffic lights. National Grid will let residents and businesses know if this is needed.
