We will construct a new three-armed roundabout at the A46/Lincoln Road junction. We will also reduce the level of the hill along this section of the A46.

Aims and benefits

The project aims and benefits are to:

  • improve safety and reduce the number of collisions at this junction
  • reduce congestion and increase visibility for all road users
  • accommodate future development in the area

Cost and funding

The project is part-funded using £2m from the Department of Transport. The remaining funding will come from a combination of third party contributions and us.
