'Insufficient' tarmac delays Doncaster road works

Commuters in Doncaster have been warned of delays, after a contractor carrying out road works ran out of tarmac.

Resurfacing of the A18 Carr House Road westbound was due to finish last night.

But Steve Larkin, an engineer at Doncaster Council, said: "Due to insufficient materials to relay all the road surface last night, there currently remains a lane closure."

He added that they had asked the contractor "to source the necessary tarmac before tonight".
