Parts of the M180 will be closed until 11 August for resurfacing work

Drivers using the M180 motorway in North Lincolnshire have been told to expect delays due to resurfacing work.

The Highways Agency has apologised for the congestion caused on Wednesday, with some drivers reporting delays of more than two hours.

The eastbound carriageway is closed until 11 August between junctions one and three.

Chris Holehouse, of the agency, said it was working with police to try and reduce congestion.

"We acknowledge that closing sections of the M180 for long periods has been disruptive to drivers and residents," he said.

"Drivers are advised to plan their journeys around this area, leave plenty of extra time, make sure they and their vehicle is prepared in case of delays."

Work is scheduled to run for a period of four weeks.

The Highways Agency said it will take action from the feed back it has received this week and try to alleviate future problems.
