A spokesperson said: ‘A contentious subject for some, but the A18 improvement works at Doncaster are a vital program of construction and maintenance works aimed at road safety and the life of the carriageway .

“Led by Doncaster Council, we are also heavily involved in the work here, and so far everything looks good and on schedule.

“Since the closure of the road, we have prepared both sides of the carriageway through an extensive earthworks program which has already included a large amount of soil excavation and substructure work to prepare the carriageway for a major coating program which began this week.

“Implementing a phased approach to this work means that what we have achieved so far will benefit the work that remains to be done.

“Overall costs will remain within budget and our increased focus on improving the program will ensure that completion remains largely on target.

“Stay tuned to our social feed, this is where you’ll find all the latest information on local projects we’re currently involved in and projects we’re involved in elsewhere in the region.”

The road closed in June for ten weeks and is not expected to reopen until September 3.

A Doncaster Council spokesman said: ‘The A18 Thorne Road and West Moor Link suffer from congestion and delays, particularly during peak hours. This congestion stifles growth and prevents the development of housing and jobs in the area.
