About the project

A46 Dunholme/Welton drawing

We have built a new three-armed roundabout at the A46/Lincoln Road junction and reduced the level of the hill along this section of the A46 to improve visibility.

Aims and benefits

Now that the project is complete, these improvements will:

  • 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 £5.6m project was part-funded using the £2m allocated to the authority by the Department of Transport (DfT) from tranche 2 of its National Productivity Investment Fund. The remaining funding has come from a combination of third party contributions and the county council.
