Artist's rendering of Lincoln High Street rejuvenation project released

15 June 2017

Works that will give a section of Lincoln High Street a new lease of life.

The rendering’s release coincides with the announcement that North Midland Construction has been awarded the contract to undertake works that will give a section of Lincoln High Street a new lease of life.

Artist's Rendering

Expected to be complete before December

The UK company was selected through the Midlands Highways Alliance Framework. Work on the scheme will start in August and is expected to be complete before December, ahead of this year’s Christmas Market.

As seen in the artist’s rendering, the project will see the recently-pedestrianised area between Tentercroft Street and St Mary’s Street paved in natural stone with new seating and signage installed, making the area more attractive to shoppers and giving local businesses a boost. 

Cllr Richard Davies, Executive Member for Highways, said:

“This is fantastic news for the people of Lincoln. When complete, not only will these improvement works link this part of the city with the uphill area around the cathedral and castle, but they will also create a more open and pleasant space.”

The proposed programme of works will be sequenced to minimise disruption to businesses, residents and pedestrians.

Cllr Colin Davie, Executive Member for Economic Development, said:

“These works will give this part of the High Street a new lease of life by strengthening its connection with the existing shopping area north of the level crossing. In turn, this will attract more people to the area, increase footfall for local businesses and open up the potential for activities like street markets and outdoor cafes.

“Combined with the recent opening of the East West Link Road, this work would really open up this area of central Lincoln, creating new opportunities that will help attract investment and fuel growth.”   

The £800,000 scheme is being delivered by Lincolnshire County Council, using part of the £2.7m granted by Central Government (via Department for Communities and Local Government) as Growth Point Pump Priming funds to “help unlock growth in Lincoln”.
