Construction work on the northern section of Spalding Western Relief Road is due to begin on Monday.

The project, which had been postponed from last summer, is set to take until autumn 2023 to complete and will eventually see a new five-arm roundabout built on Spalding Road.

A Lincolnshire County Council spokesman confirmed that work is still due to begin on Monday morning.

The exact time of the start is not known - but the early work will be away from Spalding Road to the west of the site and will involve putting up a new site camp, installing crane pads and will see the start of construction of gas main protection.

There will also be a number of stone deliveries to the site on Monday.

The start of the project will also result in the 18-month closure of Two Plank Bridge to pedestrians.

This section of the road will also feature a bridge over the railway and end in a T-junction next to the Vernatt's Drain.

Disruption will be expected later in the year - thought to be the autumn - when road closures and temporary traffic signals are needed on Enterprise Way and Spalding Road.

Preparatory works had already been carried out last year - with contractor Eurovia fencing off the site ready to begin. However, there were delays in signing the land deals and in securing the materials needed.
