The works on the Bottesford Moor bridge over the M180 meant the motorway was closed for the whole of last weekend, leading to gridlock through Scunthorpe[3] on Saturday (July 8) and Sunday (July 9).

Now, Highways England has released two time-lapse videos showing the project being undertaken by engineers.
