Traffic is flowing freely in Grantham following this morning’s gridlock as roadworks started in various locations.

Roadworks have begun in Castlegate and Sandon Road with diversions in progress. Traffic was crawling along the High Street and other roads including Avenue Road and Elmer Street South.

The gridlock on the roads this morning has prompted many readers to voice their frustration on Facebook and Twitter.

Paula Bartram said: “Why can’t they just shut one road at a time! I’ve never seen traffic as bad as it is this morning! Lincolnshire Highways department is a joke!”

Lynn Golightly said: “Why can’t they redirect some traffic through Watergate car park, that would help surely!”

Faith Clarke said: “Top of East Street and Castlegate is closed! Guessing they’re finally mending the sink hole at the top but I doubt they’ll seal it so will need redoing next week!!”
