All the funding is now in place

The British construction firm is expected to start work on phase two of the scheme this July and is projected to be complete by 2019.

The £20m portion of new road will join the B1174 to the A1, representing an important part of the Grantham Southern Relief Road. When complete, the relief road will link the A52 at Somerby Hill to the A1, attracting a significant volume of traffic, including HGVs, and resulting in a reduction in congestion in Grantham town centre.

Cllr Richard Davies, Executive Member for Highways and Transport, said:

“We’re making good progress on the Grantham Southern Relief Road and look forward to formally awarding the contract to Galliford Try once we’ve gained the necessary permissions from Highways England to start phase two.

“All the funding is in place and work should start on-site this summer. At the moment, we remain on course to have the entire road completed in 2019.

“This is great news because, when complete, the relief road will ease congestion in the town centre by providing traffic with an alternative route around, instead of through, Grantham.”
