Lincoln bypass gets go-ahead

February 17, 2016

Hundreds of construction jobs are to be created in Lincoln after the government finally passed the application for the city’s eastern bypass.

The road will help ease traffic flows around the city by reducing the need for vehicles to pass into the centre, but the plans have been fiercely opposed by residents of three villages, whose main route into Lincoln was to be cut off.

Residents of Cherry Willingham, Reepham and Fiskerton have been deeply unhappy with the proposals, with two public inquiries taking place before the plans were approved.

One key issue was the replacement of the road from the villages with a new bridge, with the original plan in 2014 being rejected on safety grounds.

However, a modified version has now been accepted, even though this scheme still leaves the three villages with inferior access to before.

Welcoming the news, councillor Richard Davies said the bypass is “a vital component in our plans to create a fit-for-purpose highways infrastructure for the needs of an expanding Lincoln”.
