Work on Brigg Road in Scunthorpe on schedule but still holding up motorists
Northern Power Grid has confirmed that cable replacement work on Brigg Road in Scunthorpe is running to schedule.
Work is currently being carried out on Brigg Road Railway Bridge and this is expected to be finished in two weeks.
Shortly after that, Northern Power Grid has confirmed it will stop work until after the Christmas period, as agreed with North Lincolnshire Council, the highway authority.
The work is part of a £4.5 million project being carried out by Northern Power Grid to upgrade Scunthorpe's electricity supply.

A Northern Power Grid spokesman said: "We appreciate the patience that motorists are showing as we carry out this essential work in the town which in total will see eight kilometres worth of old oil-filled electricity cables replaced with more environmentally friendly and reliable ones.
"As we progress through the work, we are doing everything we can to keep major employers and the community informed of when and where we are carrying out work, and when traffic is likely to be disrupted."
Currently, at peak times, traffic held up at the temporary traffic lights on the railway bridge is stretching beyond the junction at the top end of Station Road, frustrating motorists.
