It has been relief all round in Wragby over the last seven days after contractors finally finished a controversial programme of roadworks and other improvements.

There had been widespread complaints from vehicle owners, residents and business owners about the work on the A158 in the centre of the village.

Several businesses claimed they were losing thousands of pounds - without any chance of compensation.

There were also complaints about long diversion routes and delays because of overnight road closures.

However, the County Council confirmed the work had been completed last Tuesday.

The authority added that some final improvements needed to be made to an adjacent footpath which required temporary traffic lights to be in place between 9.30am and 3pm.

The statement added: “ Once this is complete, the A158 and B1202 will be fully open - business-as-usual.”

Over the last 12 weeks the road has been fully reconstructed and resurfaced. In addition, three new pedestrian crossings have been installed, traffic lights signals have been upgraded, and the footpath next to the Marketplace has been widened.

The £350,000 scheme has been completed slightly ahead of schedule.
