Highways officers say the lives of their workers are being put at risk because drivers are ignoring one-way signs on Springfield Road in Grantham.

A spokesman for Lincolnshire County Council’s Highways Department said: “We are having problems on site with people ignoring the one-way eastbound closure on Springfield Road. We are experiencing a number of vehicles everyday coming down Springfield Road, through the closure and no entry signs, through the red lights at the Railway bridge and through our works. This is causing great risk to our workforce.

“We have asked the police to visit the site to enforce this and all the other traffic management arrangements. We have also been monitoring the junction of the CCTV cameras and will be passing the registration number of the vehicle undertaking any unlawful manoeuvres onto the police.”
