Planning application for A46 Dunholme / Welton Roundabout approved

5 February 2018

Plans for a new roundabout at the junction of Lincoln Road and the A46 in Dunholme have been approved by the Planning and Regulation Committee, bringing the project one step closer to fruition.

The new roundabout, along with the improvement of visibility on the A46 to the east, will improve safety and reduce congestion at the current simple T-junction. The improvement will also accommodate future development in the area.

Cllr Richard Davies, Executive Member for Highways, said:

“We’re thrilled that this planning application has been conditionally approved, as it means we can move ahead with completing a full detailed design of the new scheme while carrying on obtaining the necessary legal orders to make changes to sections of the existing layout.

“The benefits of this scheme are two-fold. Not only will it help improve safety in a location where there have been several collisions in recent years, but it will also help to reduce congestion on Lincoln Road and accommodate future development in the area.

“When constructed, the new roundabout and realigned A46 will be easier to navigate, reducing the potential for driver error and making this a safer, more reliable route for all road users.”

The A46 Dunholme, Welton Roundabout project will be 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 for the construction of the scheme, including third party contributions, is currently being reviewed by the county council.
