A link road has been opened to serve a new housing development and also make it easier for people living in the Woottons to get to Lynnsport.

It leads from the A1078 Edward Benefer Way through the North Lynn industrial estate to Lynnsport via Lynnsport Way.

Lynnsport's new car park is also now fully open with around 500 spaces available, twice the previous number.

A spokesman for Alive Leisure, the charitable trust which runs Lynnsport, said: 'If you live in the Woottons or the surrounding area then it's now even easier to get to Lynnsport.

'The new access road will also take you past the fantastic new floodlit tennis courts, the new football pitches and the new Pelican's hockey pitch.

The link road will serve the five sites in the Lynnsport/Marsh Lane area that have identified for housing over the next five years to help meet need in the area.

About 370 homes are planned across the sites and these will be a mix of two, three and four-bedroom properties with around 15pc being social housing. The remainder will be available for sale. The homes are set to be built by October 2020.

The overall development also includes new community facilities at the Dutton Pavilion and a 2.6-hectare managed nature area, Salters Sanctuary.
