Phase two of Grantham Southern Relief Road set to start in early 2018

30 June 2017

With Highways England needing to carry out maintenance works on the A1 Harlaxton, the second phase of the new road will now start early next year.

Phase two is expected to take eighteen months

Cllr Richard Davies, Executive Member for Highways, said:

“Highways England has informed us that they now need to carry out necessary maintenance works on the A1 from September to December.

“We are unlikely to be able to begin phase two of the Grantham Southern Relief Road until they are off the network, and we’re currently reviewing our plans to gauge the impact this will have on the timetable for the overall project.

“In the meantime, we’ll continue working on the necessary legal orders for the road so that we’re ready to start as soon as Highways England is done.”

Phase two is expected to take eighteen months once ground is broken and construction work officially begins.

Preparatory works for phase two were carried out earlier this year, including hedge clearance and Ground Penetration Radar surveys, with archaeological investigations set to be carried out on the western side of the A1 starting in the next few months.
