Lincoln Eastern Bypass

The Lincoln Eastern Bypass, backed by Lincolnshire County Council, Lincolnshire Enterprise 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.

After extensive public consultation Route Z was announced as the Preferred Route.

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.

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.

Construction of the scheme is expected to start in Autumn 2014 and take 2 years to build.
