More news, no ads


Motorists have been assured that the major project at Cross Keys Bridge is on course to be completed in a couple of weeks.

A £1.5 million project to paint and repair the 1897 Sutton Bridge structure has been ongoing since February - and has caused tailbacks on the A17 while traffic management measures have been in place.

Overnight closures are all finished now - and bosses have confirmed that the scheduled end date of July 1 is still the target.

A spokesman for Lincolnshire County Council said: “It’s all on schedule – we’ve had nothing to extend the dates so far."

The council's ambition was to finish the project in time for the school summer holidays - with the route a key road for traffic heading to the north Norfolk coast.

The official diversion route is via the A17, A1101 and A47.
