It includes 10 sections of road in Peterborough - and 21 in Cambridgeshire.

The work will continue in stages until next June.

A council spokesman said: "It will mean a long-term approach to the maintenance of these roads and will mean all work can be carried out in one go, preventing the need for repeated costly repairs and extra disruption for drivers."

LAMMA show to leave Peterborough for Birmingham from 2019

The UK's largest agricultural event is to leave Peterborough.

The annual two-day farm machinery show - called LAMMA - has been held at the East of England Showground since 2014, and this year attracted over 40,000 visitors.

They say the last one in Peterborough, to held between 17-18 January will be the largest yet, with 900 exhibitors.

Plans for new homes near Peterborough scaled back

Hannah Olsson

BBC Radio Cambridgeshire political reporter

Proposals to build a new settlement near the A47 just outside of Castor as part of the Peterborough Local Plan have been dropped.

After considering new guidance from the government, the Local Plan housing target has been reduced by nearly 2,000 to just over 21,000 new homes by 2036.

There was a great deal of opposition to the plan with people saying it was going to ruin their local villages and that it wasn't in the right place - the council said they were going to look again because there had been a change in government policy.

In effect - the government said the council didn't need to build as many houses as originally though.

In a statement the authority said: "It would no longer be appropriate to take forward the proposed new settlement to the north of the A47 close to Castor and Ailsworth."

Bus replacements for train services

Harry Parkhill

BBC Local Live, Lincolnshire

There will be buses to replace train journeys affected by works on Lincolnshire's railways this weekend.

Work on a railway bridge between Spalding and Sleaford and on the Lincoln Eastern Bypass will disrupt journeys:

  • On Saturday 21, October, Sunday, 22 October and Monday, 23 October there will be a rail replacement service between Spalding, Sleaford and Lincoln. Trains will operate between Peterborough and Spalding.
  • On Tuesday, 24 October, trains between Lincoln and Peterborough will operate between Lincoln and Sleaford only. A rail replacement service will operate between Sleaford, Spalding and Peterborough.

This is crucial work and investment to improve the railway in Lincolnshire. We have worked with Network Rail to ensure that disruption for our customers is kept to a minimum

PM tells local activists 'make case for capitalism'

Andrew Sinclair

BBC Look East political correspondent

The Prime Minister has told Conservative party members from the region to stand up to Labour and fight "a battle of ideas".

"It's a battle we thought we'd won, but we have to make the argument for capitalism again," she told the east of England reception at her party's conference in Manchester.

Theresa May said there was a new generation of voters who'd grown up during austerity who felt the market hadn't worked for them. She said the Conservatives needed to spread the message of opportunity and aspiration adding "but we must also recognise the concerns of a generation who fear they'll be worse off than their parents".

The party, which is still reeling from failing to win the general election outright and losing Ipswich, Peterborough and Bedford to Labour in this year's general election, is talking a lot about reaching out to younger voters.

It has already announced plans to freeze tuition fees and extend the "help to buy" scheme for homes.

Mrs May congratulated party activists for "a very impressive performance" in this year's local elections.

In a brief reference to the general election she said she was "sorry to have lost some good colleagues".
