Karen Cassar, assistant director highways at Lincolnshire County Council, said: “Gunby is an essential part of the route to Skegness and the county’s coast from the west.

“Over the years, the condition of the road surface at each of its legs has considerably deteriorated. So, once the summer holidays are over, we’ll be rebuilding each leg of the roundabout so that people’s journeys are smoother and safer.

“These works will inevitably cause some disruption, but we’ll be doing everything we can to keep it to a minimum, including working overnight so that people using the roundabout in the day aren’t affected.

“We ask for your continued patience while they are carried out.”
