The account will be updated on a daily basis both during and outside normal office hours.
Councillor Neil Poole, from Messingham, Cabinet member for Policy and Resources said: “By keeping up-to-date with @NLCHighways the travelling public can understand road conditions before they set off on their journeys.
"It could prevent accidents and save lives.
“We’re constantly looking for new ways to communicate and engage. Social media is a key part of that.
"To follow the account you don’t even need a Twitter account. Of course the public can continue to contact us through our website and the contact centre. But we’re hoping that in many cases we can get information out without people having to ring.
“We will continue our push to transform the way we inform residents.”
