Cold weather has delayed the start of roadworks near the site earmarked for a supermarket and mosque for a second time.

The project was due to start earlier this week after being postponed from January.

No go: Ten weeks of roadworks have been delayed at Boultham Park Road, Lincoln. They will eventually pave the way for a former dairy site to become home to a new mosque  

The roadworks had been due to start a month ago but were postponed after heavy snow.

A total of £250,000 is being spent on the works, including £74,500 from developer Lincolnshire Co-operative.

Throughout the project, there will be no right turn from Dixon Street into Boultham Park Road South. Access north of the crossroads will be via Coulson Road and Boultham Avenue.

Paul Coathup, assistant director for highways and transportation, said: "Over the next few weeks, we will be widening Boultham Park Road and carrying out other maintenance work such as resurfacing, repainting road markings and upgrading the existing lighting. The work will reduce travel times and will make significant improvement to traffic flow within the city."
