Information which is gathered will be used to create a new transport strategy for Gainsborough that will include proposals for improving local transport.

Coun Clio Perraton-Williams, executive support councillor for highways at Lincolnshire County Council, said: "Gainsborough is important to the county's growth and prosperity, and we're committed to investing in the local infrastructure and services.

"It's not just the people living, working and visiting the town that rely on good roads. Businesses also need a strong transport network to move goods, so the new strategy will have major economic benefits as well.

"These drop-in events are the perfect opportunity for you to share your ideas on how to make getting about Gainsborough quicker and easier for you and others.
