A road closure in Stamford that has been causing confusion for drivers has been temporarily fixed.

The Lincolnshire County Council has put up a number of new signs around the town to advise drivers that business is still open as usual.

Red Lion Street has been closed since Monday, October 29, due to scaffolding work taking place outside The Periwig.

Diversions are in place around Stamford, but have confused some drivers, with some avoiding Broad Street as a result.

The council received a number of complaints from local businesses about the lack of customers due to the diversion signs.

The new signs have now been installed by the council on the Town Bridge and in Red Lion Square, stating that businesses are open as usual.

The diversionary route is still the same, directing traffic via St John’s Street, St Mary’s Street, St Mary’s Hill, Wharf Road and Brazenose 
Lane.

Although changes have been made a number of businesses are still feeling the effects of the road closure, including Beyond the Fringe and Cuts n More.

The road is expected to be closed until Friday, October 17.
