Bypass opens three months early
Lincolnshire villagers are celebrating the early opening of their bypass.

Partney, near Alford, is benefiting from a new road which was ready three months ahead of schedule. The official opening takes place later this month.

The villages of Burgh Le Marsh and Orby will both benefit from similar schemes as part of the 23m project to improve access to the Lincolnshire Coast.

These should give East Midlands and Yorkshire motorists a faster road to the sea, and bring relief to residents.

The site clearance works at Partney for the new stretches of A16 and A158 started in March 2004 with construction work beginning last summer.
