Boston Dolphin Lane Rejuvenation

The signage above Dolphin Lane

The Dolphin Lane rejuvenation project in Boston will see the lane’s current paving replaced with a more aesthetically-pleasing style of Yorkstone setts that reflect the historic character of the town centre.

Repairs and replacements to the current bollards will also be carried out. A new bin, bench and four new cycle stands will also be installed.

Businesses along Dolphin Lane will remain open throughout the works. 

The project is part of the Boston Town Deal's Healing the High Street project, which is being carried out by Heritage Lincolnshire.
