A £1.5m scheme is under way to regenerate the Market Place in Grantham.

The work will include upgrading traffic signals, adding a new pedestrian crossing, resurfacing the road and creating more pavement space.

Lincolnshire County Council has reassured traders that it will try to keep disruption to a minimum.

Highways manager Brian Thompson said the work would benefit the town in the future.

He said: "The idea is that we provide new houses for people moving into Grantham, but in the same place we provide places for people to work.

"Grantham is ready to take the large housing numbers, more or less doubling the size of Grantham over the next 20 or so years."

The work, which forms part of the Grantham Growth Point project, is expected to last about nine weeks.

The project is a partnership between Lincolnshire County Council and South Kesteven District Council.
