North Lincolnshire Council leader Cllr Rob Waltham has apologised for any inconvenience caused by the start of a 17-week programme of road works as part an £800,000 plan for a new Ashby Market.
The leader has also said disruption will be kept to a minimum.
Cllr Waltham said: ““Work started this week on transforming Ashby Broadway to make way for the new street style Ashby Market that is expected to be ready in autumn this year.
“We are investing around £800,000 to relocate Ashby Market. This is the most significant investment there has been in Ashby for a generation.
“The new Ashby Market will be in a busier and more prominent area of Ashby and market traders will get passing trade from shoppers - providing more opportunities for the traders.
“There are four car parks located in Ashby on Bottesford Road, Alexandra Road, Ashby High Street and Collum Avenue/School Road, which can be used for parking whilst work is carried out on Broadway. It is free to park for two hours on weekdays and all day on Saturdays and Sundays in all of these car parks.
“We apologise for any inconvenience caused by the works being carried out. We aim to keep disruption to a minimum. Once work has been completed, parking will be available again on Broadway except on Thursday market days.”
