Lincoln Eastern Bypass

The Lincoln Eastern Bypass, backed by Lincolnshire County Council, Greater Lincolnshire Local Enterprise Partnership and the three District Authorities (Lincoln City, West Lindsey and North Kesteven), provides the opportunity to improve Lincoln’s infrastructure and encourage growth.

The scheme aims to meet key County Council objectives including minimising traffic congestion, supporting Lincoln’s growth as a principal urban centre, and enhancing the inter-city environment.

As a result of receiving £50M funding from Central Government in 2011, a planning application for a single carriageway was submitted in December 2012 and was granted in June 2013. Details of the planning application can be viewed online through Lincolnshire County Council’s Planning Portal.

To search for the planning application, once on the Planning Portal, after clicking on ‘Search for application details and decisions’ enter the keyword ‘bypass’ in the key word(s) box and this will take you to the application.

Two applications to vary the details of the planning permissions have recently been granted consent.

Please follow this link for details of the application to vary a number of planning conditions on the main application.

Please follow this link for details of the new application for the NMU Bridge at Hawthorn Road.

For information on the bid for funding from the Department for Transport please see the Lincoln Eastern Bypass Best and Final Bid page.

The bypass will serve as a step towards the completion of an eventual ring road around Lincoln, connecting the existing western and northern relief roads to the anticipated southern bypass.

Following the Public Inquiry held in February 2014, the Department for Transport (DfT) published its decision to not grant the legal orders that the Council requires to proceed with the project because of safety concerns relating to a small junction connecting Hawthorn Road to the footbridge which spans the bypass.

The Council has looked to address the issues outlined in the Inspector’s report and has now resubmitted its application for the legal orders. Details of the new 2014 Orders can be found below. The objection period for the orders closes on 5 December 2014.

Details of the press release with further information can be found in the Related Pages section below.
